**Welcome to Shane Chern's webpage!**

I am currently a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow at Dalhousie University, working with Prof. Karl Dilcher.

I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Penn State in 2021 under the supervision of Prof. George E. Andrews.

The title of my thesis reads "The World of *p* and *q*: Congruences, Identities and Asymptotics". An electronic copy can be downloaded through this link.

My current research focuses on number theory, combinatorics and special functions. I also have a lasting interest in the work of Srinivasa Ramanujan. In particular, I am working on

*Enumerative Combinatorics*: Partitions, Permutations, Sequences*Number Theory*: Circle and Sieve methods, Diophantine equations*Special Functions*:*q*-Series and Basic hypergeometric functions*Mathematics of Ramanujan*: Theta and Mock Theta functions
