Introduction: Christina Vasilakopoulou

Hello all! I am a Category Theorist, originally from Greece, and I finished my Ph.D. at Cambridge under the supervision of Martin Hyland back in 2014. Since then, I have joined various teams as a postdoc (and changed equally many locations!) and am currently at UCR as a Visiting Assistant Professor, teaching a lot and collaborating with John Baez and his great team of PhD students. I have always had environmental 'concerns' alongside to my academic ones, so I would be really eager to actively combine those as a member of Azimuth!

    Hi there, Christina! It's great to see you here. As you can tell from looking at the first chapter of Seven Sketches in Compositionality, the course will start out gently with an introduction to adjunctions between posets, also known as "Galois connections". Since you already know a lot of category theory you might help answer some of the less expert students' questions... in your enormous amounts of spare time. Later, as we move into more applications, you may actually learn something!

    :) I'll be happy to, in the largest parts of my limited free time! I always enjoy reading other people's presentations of things known to me. Somehow I feel I become better in thinking about them and explaining them in the future!
