### Research interests

Research interests lie in category theory, with particular focus on enriched categories, higher-dimensional categories, and categories with algebraic structure. This research involves work on a variety of topics within computer science, in principle any for which category theory, especially its more algebraic aspects, seems likely to be of value, such as computational effects and data refinement.
