My book, Mathematical Logic and Computation, has been published. You can order it on Amazon or find it online. A PDF version may be available through your university library.

I was featured in an article in the New York Times on interactive theorem proving, automated reasoning, and machine learning for mathematics.

I recently gave a talk, Is mathematics obsolete? at the Santa Fe Institute. You can find the slides under Talks.

Patrick Massot and I have recently ported Mathematics in Lean to Lean 4. It is still a work in progress.

I have been working on verification of blockchain applications with colleagues at StarkWare. We have made public a proof-producing version of their compiler for the Cairo language, as well as a verification of code used to validate cryptographic signatures. The paper has been accepted to Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP) 2023.

You can find other activities and events listed on the Hoskinson Center web pages.

I serve on the board of directors of the Lean Focused Research Organization.

I am on the editorial boards of the Journal of Automated Reasoning and Logical Methods in Computer Science.
