I am a PhD student in mathematics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, supervised by
Joachim Kock. I am interested in category theory,
homotopy theory and logic. In a previous life I was a theoretical physicist, where I've spent
some time thinking about modified gravity and wormholes in quantum gravity.
