Download CV


Dr. Galo earned his PhD from University of Rochester and from University of São Paulo in August 2021. His research interests include Harmonic Analysis, Geometric Measure Theory and Analytic Combinatorics. His favorite subject is "Falconer-type problems" . The Falconer distance problems ask how large does the Hausdorff dimension of a compact set need to be to ensure the Lebesgue measure of the distance set. 

Dr. Galo is committed to being an effective, engaging teacher. He held teaching appointments at Colgate University (2021-2022) and University of Rochester (2018-2021). He earned an Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award in March 2020 from University of Rochester.
