From July 2018 to December 2018 I was a postdoc
in the Nonlinear
Algebra Research Group at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig.
On 7 May 2018 I successfully defended my DPhil thesis at the
University of Oxford.
The Applied Category Theory School is an initiative to bring early
career researchers into the applied category theory community. The
school consists of an online seminar and a research week. It took
place for the first time in 2018, the research week being hosted at the
Lorentz Center in Leiden. The 2019 edition will be hosted in
Oxford.
Blog posts written by the participants of the ACT 2018 School can be found on the n-Category Café. For more information, see

In general, TeX usage is pretty much like being a guest at somebody
else's house.
There are zillions of stuff that you have absolutely no idea what they
are about.
So don't fiddle too much. Just enjoy your stay and get out as soon as
possible.
