# Andrew Brooke-Taylor

I am a
University Academic Fellow
in the
School of Mathematics
of the University of Leeds.
I also hold an
EPSRC Early Career Fellowship, with the research project
*
Bringing set theory and algebraic topology together*.

I currently have 3 doctoral students,
Stamatis Dimopoulos,
graduating in 2018, John Howe (co-supervised with John Truss), and
Richard Matthews (co-supervised with Michael Rathjen).

## Research

I mainly work in
set theory,
and am especially interested in
large cardinal
axioms.
These posit the existence of cardinals (infinities)
so large that they cannot be proven to
exist from the standard axioms for mathematics. By assuming that they
do exist, we strengthen the theory, and so are able to draw more conclusions
and do more mathematics than we could otherise.

A big feature of my research is applictions of set theory to other areas of
mathematics, particularly
category theory and
algebraic topology. Indeed, this is the topic of
my EPSRC Early Career Fellowship.

This page is still a work in progress. For the time being,
here are my publications reviewed on MathSciNet
(subscription required), and
here are the papers themselves on the arXiv.
I also have a spartan, incomplete
standard
School of Mathematics webpage.
