I am an assistant professor at Denison University. I completed my PhD at Wesleyan University in 2014 under the supervision of Mark Hovey, and I completed a masters degree in computer science under the supervision of Danny Krizanc. I'm mostly interested in questions involving (semi) model categories, Bousfield localization, and algebras over (colored) operads. I like to apply my work to stable, equivariant, and motivic homotopy theory. On the computer science side I like thinking about graph theory, probability, and social networks, with an eye towards algorithms. I've also begun to dabble in game theory and economics.

I am a bit confused by the type-setting. Is that what is supposed to be in the grey box?

It's not obvious to me, if that makes you feel any better.

comment Why are pushouts the right tool in these setups
Well, I just went off what you asked: "I'm not asking for a calculation why these constructions do what they suppose to do, but rather some kind of motivation/explanation, why the author considers using pushouts". I'm annoyed that I spent so much time on this question. I think I'll ignore bounties in the future.

comment Why are pushouts the right tool in these setups
I think this answer is too homotopy-focused, because that's how I learned category theory. I was mostly writing to myself and trying to figure out what Kelly might be doing, and now that I have a better sense I went ahead and added an answer phrased more purely in terms of category theory (i.e. avoiding all the niceties that come up in the application of category theory to homotopy theory). Hope that other answer helps!
