About Samuel Coskey

Samuel Coskey joined the faculty of the Department of Mathematics at Boise State University in 2012. Originally from Seattle, he has two bachelor's degrees, in Mathematics and Computer Science, from the University of Washington, and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Before coming to Boise State he served as a postdoc at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York, and did research at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Germany, where he collaborated with the logic group at the University of Bonn. Dr. Coskey's dissertation research was in countable Borel equivalence relations; specifically the classification problem for torsion-free abelian groups of finite rank. He has since studied some aspects of the structure of the Borel equivalence relations as a whole, and his recent research interests include a variety of questions involving classification problems from other areas of math and logic, including algebra, model theory, analysis, infinitary logic, and computability theory.
