John Baez is an American mathematical physicist known for his work on spin foams in loop quantum gravity, and more recently he has focused his research on applications of higher categories to physics and other things. He graduated from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics in 1982. In 1986, he graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge with a Doctor of Philosophy. After a post-doctoral period at Yale University, in 1989 he began teaching as a professor of mathematics at the University of California. He is also known to science fans as the author of This Week's Finds in Mathematical Physics, an irregular column on the internet featuring mathematical exposition and criticism since 1993, and for running the blog " Azimuth," where he writes about a variety of topics ranging from This Week's Finds in Mathematical Physics to the current focus, combating climate change and various other environmental issues. Baez is also co-founder of the n-Category Café (or nCafé), a group blog concerning higher category theory and its applications, as well as its philosophical repercussions. Additionally, Baez is known on the World Wide Web as the author of the crackpot index.
