Description: If you are interested in working on a project in any of the above you are very welcome to talk to me, so that we can find a problem that suits both your interest and your level of expertise.

To give an example, a student interested in real geometry may want to deepen his/her understanding of the notion of a real closed field. There is a number of, at the first glance very different, definitions of this notion, and you could investigate why all of them yield the same class of objects, and the reasons why the field of real numbers stands out among them (and why people who are interested in the reals find other real closed fields useful).
