Gregory R. Chambers
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at Rice University. Before coming to Rice, I was an L. E. Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago, and a graduate student at the University of Toronto before that.
My research is in metric geometry and geometric analysis. I am particularly interested in quantitative topology, min-max theory, isoperimetric inequalities, stability estimates for geometric inequalities, and symmetrizations and their applications.

Teaching
I am not teaching in the fall 2017 semester. In the spring 2018 semester, I am teaching MATH 356: Abstract Algebra 1 and MATH 521: Advanced Topics in Real Analysis.
