Research

My research interest is homotopy theory , including category theory related to axiomatic approaches to homotopy theory, coherence etc.

Odds and Ends

Among my hobbies are Sanskrit literature and grammar, and related areas of Indo-European linguistics. Right now, all I have time put in are some document servers.
GRETIL archive TITUS archive More Sanskrit Document Servers

Temporary link to some UTF documents till I figure out how get unrooted Android devices to use real unicode fonts.
