## Jade Edenstar Master

I am currently a third year mathematics Ph.D student at University of California Riverside studying applied category theory with John Baez. From 2012 to 2016 I completed a B.S. in Applied Math and a B.S. in Physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

# Papers

Here is my paper about generalizing Petri nets using Lawvere theories

Here is my paper about open Petri nets and their reachability

Here is a paper I wrote about translation and language change in category theoretic approaches to linguistics. It was presented at the CAPNS 2018 Conference.

Translating and Evolving: Towards a Model of Language Change in DisCoCat

# Blog Posts

Here is a blog post I wrote about my work on generalized Petri nets

Here is a blog post I wrote about Linguistics in Category Theory.

Linguistics Using Category Theory

Here is a blog post that John Baez wrote about our work on open Petri nets

I am writing a series of blog posts about the Grothendieck construction

Let's Grothendieck Everything in Sight!

I've also been writing a bit about dynamical systems and category theory
