About Me

Welcome to my personal website! My name is Miguel Angel Mota and I am an associate professor at the Department of Mathematics at ITAM (I received my Ph.D. from the University of Barcelona under the supervision of David Asperó and Joan Bagaria).

The subject of my work is set theory, more precisely the study of forcing axioms and their effect on cardinal arithmetic. I currently build models of set theory where the continuum is different from the second uncountable cardinal (including models of Cantor's Continuum Hypothesis). This link contains a historic overview of my research.
