  6. My thesis, Computability in Ordinal Ranks and Symbolic Dynamics, was completed in May 2014 under Theodore Slaman. It contains additional work on the hierarchy of Denjoy integrable functions, as well as a number of results on subshifts. Feel free to email me for a copy of the thesis; its content will appear soon in preprint form.
