I’m Scott Morrison, another recent graduate from Berkeley. I’m now working in Santa Barbara, at Microsoft Station Q. I mostly work on Khovanov homology, and mostly on the ‘topological’ aspects of that. Parochial, eh?
But secretly Khovanov homology is another of these messily sprawling subjects, with bits of topology, representation theory, homological algebra, higher category theory, and even algebraic geometry turning up. (But algebraic geometry still scares me, so hopefully Joel will turn up at the blog and be able to look after that aspect of things!)
