My name is Michelle Strumila and I am a third year PhD student at the University of Melbourne, studying algebraic topology. My thesis is on a particular example of a cyclic infinity operad. Based around cobordisms, it is known as the surface operad.
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 asteroidal sets.
I also have some interest in information theory, mathematical foundations and philosophy, and astrophysics.
