nLab Todd Trimble

I am a mathematician specializing in category theory. My PhD was completed in 1994 under the direction of Myles Tierney, and centered on categorical coherence problems and their relation to categorical logic. Subsequently I spent a few years in Sydney working with Ross Street, mainly on higher-dimensional categories, and then spent a few years in Chicago; the Chicago category seminar at the University of Chicago was founded during my stay.

In 2001 I left academe to become a full-time parent, continuing to do mathematics as time allows. Part of those activities include participating in the nn-Category Café blog, and at one time coauthoring the mathematics blog Topological Musings. Since late 2013 I have also been a moderator at MathOverflow.

Starting in January 2019 I hold a temporary appointment as Assistant Professor at Western Connecticut State University.

A few of my older scribblings can be found here; some more recent ones are at my nLab web here.

I can be reached at topological-dot-musings-at (insert gmail extension).
