Luca Motto Ros
I currently work as assistant professor at the
Logic Department
of the
University of Freiburg.
Previously, I was a postdoc for three years (Oct 2007Sep 2010) at the Kurt Gödel Research
Center for Mathematical Logic (chair: Sy
D. Friedman) at the University of Vienna.
I got my PhD from the Polytechnic of
Turin in 2007 under the direction of
Riccardo Camerlo, professor at the Polytechnic of Turin,
and
Alessandro Andretta, professor at the University of Turin.
Research interests
Mathematical Logic, more specifically, Set Theory; even more specifically:
Descriptive Set Theory, Wadge Theory,
the Axiom of Determinacy and its consequences, Analytic Equivalence
Relations and Quasiorders.
Publications
The preprints of my papers can also be found on arXiv.

Slides of some talks
 Here are the slides of my talk at the "6th Young Set Theory Workshop" (June
2013) concerning the descriptive settheoretical complexity of the embeddability relation on uncountable models. This is a continuation of the work presented at the Logic Colloquium 2011 in Barcelona.
 Here are the slides of my talk at the "Descriptive Set Theory in Paris" meeting (December
2012) concerning the structure of finite level and \omegadecomposable Borel functions.
 Here are the slides of my talk in the Set Theory special session of the Logic Colloquium 2011 held in Barcelona (July 2011) concerning the universality of the relation of embeddability among models of size a weakly compact cardinal.
 Here are the slides of my
talk at the KGRC of Vienna (January
2010) concerning the relations of isomorphism and
biembeddability.
 Here are the slides of my
talk at the "ESI workshop on large cardinals and descriptive set theory" held in Vienna (June
2009) concerning (partial results on) invariantly universal analytic quasiorders
(partially joint work with Sy D. Friedman and Riccardo Camerlo).
 Here are the slides of my talk at the "Descriptive Set Theory in Paris" meeting (December
2008) concerning analytic equivalence relations and
biembeddability (joint work with Sy D. Friedman).
