Aaron Mazel-Gee

My name is Aaron. I like to do math. It is my job. I'm in my fifth year of grad school at UC Berkeley. I study algebraic topology. My advisor is Peter Teichner.

My email address is noraa@math.berkeley.edu, except that that's not quite it. My office at Berkeley is 741 Evans. Throughout 2012, I was based at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, Germany. Throughout 2013, I was based at MIT in Cambridge, MA.


My current research interests are: higher category theory, abstract homotopy theory, and their applications to equivariant and motivic homotopy theory; chromatic homotopy theory and its interactions with number theory; derived algebraic geometry; the human condition.

My current projects include...


The *actual* final version of the Adem relations calculator is here -- brought to you, as always, by the wizardry of the kruckmachine.

I passed my qualifying exam on Friday, May 13, 2011.

The unoriented cobordism ring is π*(MO)=Z/2[{xn:n≠2t-1}]=Z/2[x2,x4,x5,x6,x8,x9,...].
The complex cobordism ring is π*(MU)=Z[{x2n}]=Z[x2,x4,x6,...].
