Patrick K. McFaddin



Welcome!

I am a Visiting Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of South Carolina, working under the supervision of Matt Ballard. I recently completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia under the supervision of Danny Krashen.

My research interests include algebra and algebraic geometry. In particular, I am interested in algebraic K-theory, algebraic cycles, motives and motivic cohomology, central simple algebras, algebraic groups, homogeneous and toric varieties, and derived geometry.

I am currently advising Danielle Wood, an undergraduate at South Carolina, on a project concerning the implementation of flipped-classroom learning in middle-schools.

In Spring 2018, I organized a seminar on (Grothendieck-Chow) motives .
