Richard Garner
I am an ARC Australian Research Fellow
and Senior Lecturer in the Mathematics department at Macquarie
University, Sydney. My research interests are in abstract
mathematics, broadly construed, in particular in category theory and
its applications to logic, topology, geometry and computer
science.
