Mathieu Dupont

I am a researcher in mathematics. I defended my PhD thesis in category theory on 30 June 2008 at the Université catholique de Louvain, in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium).

Mathematical interests

My principal interests are in category theory, logic and the foundations of mathematics. In my PhD thesis, I defined abelian and 2-abelian groupoid-enriched categories, which are 2-dimensional versions of abelian categories. In them we can develop 2-dimensional homology theory. At the same time, I've been interested in the question of the foundations and the formalisation of category theory (and, more generally, of mathematics).
