Set theory, number theory, group theory, graph theory, in that order.
Interests: gameboard topology, network topology, Latin squares and Sudoku games (proper). I binary representation and thinking about how computers do math. Ordinal numbers. Non-classical decision problems.
Areas of Inquiry: combinatorics, statistics, general theory of games
Profile: I would describe myself as a naive generalist (perpetual noob) interested in fundamental techniques and concepts.
Goals: analysis of games to promote fundamental maths in primary education, turn order as a modulo function as an example. This comes out the excitement I felt as a child in recognizing the beauty of mathematics, but having no compelling problems in which to apply them, only exercises in the form of work. It is unlikely mathematical techniques exist that cannot either be gamified or utilized in analysis of puzzles and strategic games.
