Higher structures on supermanifolds

My recent work has concerned two projects, both concerned with higher structures on supermanifolds. I will probably focus on my work extending the classification theorems for gerbes to supermanifolds, with an eye to examples on super Lie groups. My other project, that I will probably not discuss, concerns applying cyclic cohomology to super-Yang-Mills theory in the so-called superspace formalism (i.e., formulated as a theory on a supermanifold).
