- This question does not appear to be about research level mathematics within the scope defined in the help center.

after he left his job at the IHES, the foundations of homotopy theory and higher category theory. For this, see:Pursuing Stacks,Les Derivateurs, still unpublished, but containing ideas that lead to e.g. Voevodsky's proof of the Milnor and Bloch-Kato conjectures using motivic homotopy theory. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Nov 14 '14 at 1:12
