Cornell University
Richard Shore is the Goldwin Smith Professor of Mathematics at Cornell University, and is a past president of the Association for Symbolic Logic. He received his doctorate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1972, under the supervision of Gerald Sacks. At Cornell he has directed 16 doctoral theses and mentored a dozen postdoctoral scholars.
Rahim Moosa
University of Waterloo
Rahim Moosa received his doctorate in 2001 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, with Anand Pillay as his advisor. After a series of postdoctoral positions, he joined the faculty at the University of Waterloo, where he is now Associate Professor. He studies model theory, especially in relation to differential algebra, fields, and number theory.
Andrew Brooke-Taylor
University of Bristol
Andrew Brooke-Taylor is a set theorist, who applies large cardinal axioms and other tools and techniques from set theory to other areas of mathematics, particularly category theory and algebraic topology. He received his doctorate in 2007 from the Kurt Gödel Research Center and the Universität Wien, and has held postdoctoral positions at the University of Bristol and at Kobe University.
Arthur W. Apter
The City University of New York
Distinguished professor Arthur W. Apter received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees, both in mathematics, from MIT in 1975 and 1978, respectively. He is a mathematical logician, with a specialization in set theory, specifically large cardinals, forcing, and indestructibility, and he maintains a burgeoning interest in inner model theory, as well. Professor Apter has published well over 100 research articles.
