Computability, Complexity, Combinatorics, Algebra
Rod's research interests involve the theory of computation, particularly the relationship between algebraic and descriptive complexity vs algorithmic complexity. He mainly works in classical and applied computability theory and in complexity theory (mainly parameterized complexity). He also works in reverse mathematics and algorithmic information theory.
