Geoff LaForte
Associate Professor

My main area of mathematical research is logic, particularly classical recursion theory and its applications to algebra and model theory. Recursion theorists investigate how hard it is to define objects and calculate facts about them. When not working on mathematics, I take care of my two children, Gwen and Charlie; talk about metaphysics with my wife, Sally; study ancient Greek literature; read comic books; and occasionally play some country blues on my guitar.
