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:

- https://arxiv.org/pdf/2001.07488.pdf

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

Emily
