Chris Good’s early research was in the construction of counterexamples (often using set-theoretic methods) especially around the Dowker space question and the behaviour of normality in product spaces. More recently he has become interested in dynamical systems, in particular symbolic dynamics and the structure of invariant sets, and abstract topological dynamics. He is able to supervise doctoral research in these areas, as well as in:

The structure of ω-limit sets of tent maps and shifts of finite type using a mixture of analytic and symbolic techniques
The relationship between shadowing and expansivity of maps on compact metric spaces
The role of periodic points in chaos
Abstract dynamical systems modelled by compact Hausdorff spaces, separable metric spaces, the space of rational numbers and continua
Characterisations of ordinals
