About Me

My name is Asaf Karagila. If you came for my blog, click here.

I am a Ph.D. student in the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. My advisor is Menachem Magidor.

My B.Sc. and M.Sc. are from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beer Sheva, Israel; you can find my masters thesis in the Papers section, my advisor was Uri Abraham.

My main goal is to develop new tools for constructing models of $\ZF$, and with them to solve some problems related to the axiom of choice. Hopefully it won’t be long before I can post its summary on this blog. Generally I am interested in “all things choice”, and if you have any ideas for choice-related work and you’re looking for a possible collaborator, do not hesitate to send me an email to the address below.

I am also an avid MathOverflow.net and Math.StackExchange.com user.

I don't have much choice.
