# Karol Szumiło

I am a Ph.D. student in BIGS and, more specifically, in GRK 1150 "Homotopy and Cohomology" and IMPRS for Moduli Spaces. My supervisor is Stefan Schwede.

## Research

My present research interests are homotopy theory and higher category theory.

I am currently working on finishing my Ph.D. thesis. My main result is a comparison between certain notions of homotopical algebra and higher category theory. More precisely, I prove that the homotopy theory of cofibration categories is equivalent to the homotopy theory of cocomplete quasicategories.

The latest version of my thesis is available here.
