I'm a PhD student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
My prime interest is in set theory. More specifically, my research is in forcing theory and its interactions with (higher) descriptive set theory.
I'm also interested in model theory, especially Shelah's non-structure theory, abstract model theory, AEC and set-theoretic aspects.

Blackbox Theorems
Another result of Shelah which may fit in this list is the Main Gap Theorem. |

How badly does compactness fail in $\mathcal{L}_{\omega_1\omega}$?
If you weaken your demands to just having the upward Lowenheim-Skolem property, then Morley proved that the Hanf number of $L_{\omega_1, \omega}$ is $\beth_{\omega_1}$. |

The purview or scope of set theory qua set theory
This is not exactly an answer, but I think that this text might be relevant to your question: shelah.logic.at/files/E16.pdf |

Why are some axioms preserved in generic extensions?
It's worth noting that the answer may depend on large cardinal assumptions. For example, by a result of Woodin, the existence of class many measurable Woodin cardinals implies that Sigma-2-1 formulas that are true in one forcing extension are true in all forcing extensions satisfying CH (see the paper of Illias Farah for further discussion). |

The history of Proper Forcing
I believe that the initial motivations for proper forcing are well explained throughout Shelah's book. If you want a brief look at the evolution of the subject, a good place to start reading at is the "Proper forcing" chapter in the handbook of set theory (written by Uri Abraham). Regarding the open problems, you can check this paper: shelah.logic.at/files/666.pdf |

Characterizing forcings that don't add any dominating reals
@Stefan: Yes, it means "there is no f in V dominating the new real". @Justin: The above result relies quite strongly on the absoluteness properties of Suslin forcing. I'm not aware of a similar result without any definability assumption. |

$\kappa$-scales and the continuum
As Francois mentioned, b=d implies the existence of a scale. Now, it's worth noting that Martin's axiom implies the above equality (hence the existence of a scale). |
