Hi! My name is Patricio Gallardo Candela. I am an assistant professor at the University of California, Riverside. My mathematical interests include algebraic geometry, singularity theory, and Hodge theory. I also co-developed software for research in moduli theory and quivers representations. I actively mentor and involve students in my projects.

I hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Stony Brook University. After, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Georgia in Athens and at Washington University in St Louis. My favorite writer is J. L. Borges, and my hobbies include social dancing. My email is pgallard at ucr.edu. My preferred pronouns are he/him/his.

Current Graduate students

Aaron Goodwin is a Ph.D. student in Mathematics at UC Riverside, working on quiver representations and their moduli space interpretation. He received his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Anthropology from Brandeis University.
