Liang Ze Wong
I am a fourth-year math PhD student at the University of Washington, Seattle. My advisor is James Zhang.
My research interests are in category theory, categorical homotopy theory, homotopy type theory, and non-commutative algebra. I am currently working on Grothendieck fibrations in enriched category theory and in homotopy type theory. Other things I’m interested in, but haven’t had time to pursue: monads, monoidal categories, Hopf-algebra-type structures in such categories, string diagrams.
I used to write simple snippets of code for this site, mostly in Python/Sage.
