I am interested primarily in applications of
logic---specifically, model theory---to real analytic geometry,
geometric measure theory, asymptotic analysis, and questions of
differentiability and analyticity of real functions, via studying
sets and functions that are definable in "well-behaved'' (e.g.,
o-minimal) first-order structures on the field of real numbers.
Determining which structures should be regarded as well behaved is
part of the job.
