In classical Diophantine approximation the set of Badly approximable points are those whose rate of approximation, in relation to Dirichlet's Theorem, cannot be improved by an arbitrary small constant. It is a well known result that the lebesgue measure of Badly approximable points is null. The notion of Badly approximable points has natural generalizations in other $n$-dimensional metric spaces. In joint research with Victor Berensevich we prove that in any product space composed of a finite number of bounded separable metric spaces, each equipped with with a $\sigma$-finite doubling Borel regular measure, the product measure of Badly approximable points is null. The proof of this theorem uses standard results from geometric measure theory, including a generalised Lebesgue Density Theorem and Fubini's Theorem.
