Research interests

Lattice theory, ordered topological structures, and related areas; applications in logic and computer science. Specifically, my work has involved Priestley duality for distributive lattices, topological dualities for varieties of distributive lattices with additional operations and the theory of natural dualities.

I have recent and current collaborative projects on natural dualities, including their connections to other constructions, with

For a number of years I have been working, in collaboration with Mai Gehrke, on duality and canonical extensions. In particular, we are preparing a research monograph,n Lattices in Logic, for Oxford University Press.
