## Liang Ze Wong

I am a third-year math PhD student at the University of Washington, Seattle. My advisor is James Zhang.

My current interests are in category theory and Hopf algebras. Specifically, I’m interested in monads, monoidal categories, bicategories, and manifestations of Hopf-algebra-type structures in such categories. I’ve also recently begun learning about model categories and $\infty$-categories.

I used to write simple snippets of code for this site, mostly in Python/Sage. Nowadays, I spend more time playing around with string diagrams. If I have enough time and motivation, I might post some stuff about string diagrams here someday.
