My general research is in algebraic topology. I am particulary interested in stable homotopy theory, in which I study spectra with additional structures. Homotopy theorists have generalized the notion of rings with multiplication that are associative and/or commutative up to higher homotopies. These objects are called E_1 or E_∞ ring spectra. There is a natural dual notion of coalgebras, which are spectra or modules X, in which, instead of an associative unital multiplication X ⊗ X → X, we require a co-unital comultiplication X → X ⊗ X, which is coassociative up to higher homotopies. These are called E_1-coalgebras. If we require cocommutativity to be up to higher homotopies, we call them E_∞-coalgebras. There is also a notion of comodules over a coalgebra, dual to modules over an algebra. In my research, I use both model categories and quasicategories (i.e. ∞-categories) to describe the homotopy theory of coalgebras and comodules.
