Our research interests are mainly focused on finite and algorithmic model theory (i.e., model theory of finitely representable infinite structures, e.g. automatic structures), and descriptive complexity theory.

Games provide a powerful mathematical framework with a well-developed theory as well as very general and versatile models of computation. In particular they capture in a natural way the aspect of interaction. Many synthesis and validation tasks, formula checking, or query evaluation problems can be formulated in game-theoretic terms.
