Emma Phillips

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of New Hampshire, with an expected graduation in 2022. My advisor is Maria Basterra. In the 2021-2022 year, I hold a Dissertation Year Fellowship. I am currently on the job market and am interested in positions at small liberal arts colleges and postdocs in algebraic topology or category theory.

My primary research interests are in homotopy theory and category theory. I also think about principal bundles of 2-groups and about applied category theory. You can find more information about my current projects here.

I am also very passionate about teaching. At UNH, I received the Graduate Teaching Award in 2018, and before UNH I was a Mathematics Instructor at Phillips Exeter Academy.

I ascribe to the axioms laid out by Federico Ardila:

Axiom 1. Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

Axiom 2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

Axiom 3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

Axiom 4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
