Introduction I'm a mathematical physicist. I specialize in n-categories and their applications to physics, but I'm interested in many other things too. I used to like explaining math and physics on usenet newsgroups, and for many years I moderated sci.physics.research. Eventually I got sick of battling crackpots. Now you can find me at the n-Category Cafe.
Interests math, physics, music, beauty, the future, the past, really big things, really small things, the universe, the meaning of life, quantum gravity, n-categories
Favorite Music J. S. Bach, Brian Eno, Beethoven's late string quartets, Talking Heads, Photek, Robert Fripp, Miles Davis, Messiaen, Schoenberg, Steve Reich
