"Modularity in Mathematics" has been accepted to the Review of Symbolic Logic. Preprint: doi, philsci archive.

Floris van Doorn has successfully defended his PhD thesis: On the formalization of higher inductive types and synthetic homotopy theory.

Rob Lewis has successfully defended his PhD thesis: Two tools for formalizing mathematical proofs, pdf.

I have contributed to the development of a new theorem prover, Lean. There is a tutorial introduction here: online version, pdf.

Rob Lewis, Floris van Doorn, and I have prepared materials based on Lean for an undergraduate introduction to logic and mathematical proof: online version, pdf. You can read about the course here: pdf.

I am on the editorial boards of the Journal of Automated Reasoning, Computability, Logical Methods in Computer Science, the Journal of Logic and Analysis, and the Journal of Formalized Reasoning. The last three are open access journals.
