Note: My website at my current institution is https://www.mat.univie.ac.at/~chandler/.
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Vienna, working under the supervision of Anton Mellit on the FWF project titled "Macdonald Polynomials and Related Structures in Geometry". I received my PhD from North Carolina State University in May 2019 under the advisement of Radmila Sazdanovic. My PhD thesis, titled "On Thin Posets and Categorification", centered around the topics of knot theory, categorification, topological combinatorics, and graph theory. Before my graduate studies at NCSU, I received degrees in math and physics at Michigan State University where I focused on combinatorics and representation theory.
Status: 2nd year postdoc, currently on the job market for a position starting Fall 2021
Research Interests: Algebraic combinatorics, categorification, graph theory, knot theory, low dimensional topology, topological combinatorics, machine learning.
