His principal research lies in algebra, model theory, and combinatorics—topics on which he published several monographs and a number of papers.[1] He also has an interest in cognitive aspects of mathematical practice and recently published a book Mathematics under the Microscope: Notes on Cognitive Aspects of Mathematical Practice (published by AMS) which explains a mathematician's outlook on psychophysiological and cognitive issues in mathematics.
