Introduction: Emily Pillmore

Hello Everyone!

My name is Emily Pillmore, and I am a Haskell Programmer by trade, recent alumnus of the ACT Adjoint 2019 school (focus: profunctor optics w/ Bartosz), and algebraic topology enthusiast.

I am currently working towards applying to Ph.D programs for the 2021 Fall Semester, and I've been very active in the NYC category theory community hosting/attending meetups both independently and through CUNY's Graduate Category Theory Seminar. We are reading Lambek's Introduction To Higher Categorical Logic, so hit me up if you're interested!

My categorical interests are mainly focused on topics in Homotopy Theory (HoTT, Homotopical Algebra, etc) and Topos theory, but I spend alot of my time in Computer Science land, so models of the lambda calculus, parametricity, and other FP-related concepts are constantly in view. I'm currently working on understanding fibrational models for System F and proof-relevant parametricity. You can approach me with any Haskell/optics questions you might have. I'd be happy to answer :)

As part of the ACT Adjoint 2019 school, we were able to produce the following:

Cheers, and I hope to learn lots with you all!

Emily

@EmilyPillmore Great, welcome to the forum!

Thank you for your offer to help with questions!! Now we just have to come up with some :)

It's good to hear about about category theory activity in the NYC area, my home town. Can you post any relevant links, such as reading lists or group pages.

I'd like to put together a syllabus, eventually on the wiki, but we could start by posting some key entries for recommended reading. I'll start a discussion for this...
