# Welcome

Hi! My name is Patricio Gallardo.

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics at Washington University in St Louis. My mathematical interests include algebraic geometry and singularity theory; my favorite writer is J. L. Borges; and hobby includes dancing salsa and bachata. You write me to pgallardocandela at wustl.edu.

My C.V can be found here. My teaching statement (Click here)

I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Stony Brook University in 2014, under the direction of Radu Laza.
