My name is Michelle Strumila and I have just completed my PhD at the University of Melbourne, studying algebraic topology.  My thesis is on extensions of infinity operads, in particular quasi modular operads, and how they relate to topology.

I am interested in algebraic topology, especially where it intersects with category theory and physics.   Areas such as:

  • Cobordisms and Topological Quantum Field Theories
  • Cyclic operads, modular operads, and other extensions to operads
  • Infinity operads, including dendroidal sets and extensions thereof such as astroidal sets.

I also have some interest in information theory, mathematical foundations and philosophy, and astrophysics.
