Joseph Quinsey's 1980 PhD thesis,

Some problems in logic: Applications of Kripke's notion of fulfilment, has been re-typeset and can now be found on arXiv.An article I wrote on the relationship between philosophy and mathematics, with some reflection on the state of the philosophy of mathematics today, has appeared in Aeon: html.

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 also maintain a web page with additional resources for using formal methods in education.

I am on the editorial boards of the

Journal of Automated Reasoning,Computability,Logical Methods in Computer Science, theJournal of Logic and Analysis, and theJournal of Formalized Reasoning. The last three are open access journals.
