A broad description of my research interests and a list of my publications.

I am mainly interested in operator algebras. My current projects are mostly related to quantum graphs. Quantum graphs arise as a noncommutative generalization of classical graphs in graph theory. There are two main approaches to this noncommutative generalization, which have been shown to be equivalent in the past. The first approach involves a quantization of the edge relation and the second is given by a quantiziation of the adjacency matrix. I am mainly interested in finding appropriate generalizations of concepts in graph theory to the theory of quantum graphs and using operator algebraic tools to find new exciting notions for classical graph theory.

**Description:**This publication covers the results obtained during the Fields Undergraduate Summer Research Program 2018 (for more information on the program see here) under the supervision of Angèle Foley. As the title suggests, we are looking at the chromatic symmetric function of simple graphs (a certain generalization of the chromatic polynomial) for different graph classes. We give an infinite family of graphs that extend an example given by Stanley and show that the chromatic symmetric function uniquely determines graphs in this class. We also examine the chromatic quasisymmetric function of natural unit interval graphs.
