Patrick K. McFaddin


I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Fordham University (Lincoln Center). I received my Ph.D. from the University of Georgia under the supervision of Danny Krashen. After that, I was a Visiting Research Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina working under the supervision of Matt Ballard.

My research interests include algebra and algebraic geometry. In particular, I am interested in algebraic K-theory, derived categories, algebraic cycles, motives and motivic cohomology, central simple algebras, algebraic groups, homogeneous and toric varieties, and Galois cohomology. My research is supported by the American Mathematical Society and the Simons Foundation.

This semester (Spring 2021), I am teaching Math 3005 (Abstract Algebra) and Math 2005 recitation (Mulitvariable Calculus II). I am also serving as the advisor for the Mathematics and Computer & Information Sciences Major at Lincoln Center.

The Math Help Room (MHR) at Fordham, Lincoln Center is a quiet workspace where students can get help with math courses or just discuss mathematics with their peers. It is located in QuinnX, in the basement of the Lowenstein building. Math faculty at LC, as well as some majors/graduate students, are available to provide assistance and meet with students in the MHR during prescribed hours. The staffing schedule of the MHR is available in department office (LL813). Beginning in Fall 2020, we have run the Math Help Room via Zoom.
