Guy Boyde

Since October 2018 I have been a PhD student at the University of Southampton. I am working in homotopy theory under the supervision of Professor Stephen Theriault. Here's my CV.

Before that, I did the MASt (Part iii) in Cambridge, and before that I did my BSc in Southampton.

I was delighted to have a hand in organising Topics in Category Theory: A Spring School, alongside Aryan Ghobadi (QMUL) and Emily Roff (Edinburgh). The meeting took place 11-13 March 2020 at the ICMS in Edinburgh. It brought together junior researchers whose work has a significant category-theoretic component, and we learned about some of the main strands of modern category theory, both from experts and from each other. Here is the conference poster. Much of the material from the conference, including slides and posters, can be found here.

With George Simmons, I organised the Southampton postgrad seminar in 19/20. A list of talks from the latter part of that year can be found here.
