Brian Williams


I am a fifth year graduate student at Northwestern University. I am interested in homotopical ideas in quantum field theory. More specifically, I study BV-quantization in the context of perturbative QFT with an emphasis on higher dimensional holomorphic field theories. Here is my CV.
