  I am a mathematician interested in the quantification of diversity. My background is in category theory, an abstract branch of mathematics whose main application to date has been to computer science; but there also turn out to be surprising applications to theoretical ecology.  I have been using ideas from category theory to develop a new system for measuring biological diversity.
