When I arrived at UCLA in the fall of 2013 as the RTG postdoc in Logic, I thought it would be nice to organize a seminar for the logic students. In the Fall 2013 and Winter 2014 quarters, I spoke at our weekly meeting and so the tone of the seminar was dominated by my interests in set theory.

In the spring 2014 quarter, the seminar was a Math 290 course with the graduate students speaking for credit. Since then the seminar has met weekly during the academic year with graduate students, occasional visitors and myself as the speakers.Below is a list of some of the talks in roughly chronological order. The list spans roughly spring of 2014 through winter of 2016 and there may be some talks missing. Thanks to Bill and Zach for helping me compile it. Also, note that the list does not include any of my talks from the very early days of the seminar.

Bill Chen's logic blog has notes
from quite a few seminars over the years.
