Research Interests

I work in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow, where I do research in multiple categories, a branch of algebra connected with homotopy theory and with concurrency in Computer Science.

In this subject, one constructs many interesting polyhedra; for example, the following figure shows the two-dimensional source of the four-dimensional cube:
two-dimensional source of the four-dimensional cube

The cubical branch of this theory involves studying maps between cubes which map each face into a union of faces of the same or of smaller dimension and which are in a sense order-preserving. These maps can be represented by chain maps between chain complexes and can therefore be investigated algebraically. The investigation of these maps might be a suitable project for a PhD student.
