Welcome to the homepage of Gabriel Lopes Cardoso

I started my position at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) on April 1, 2009, as holder of the Invited Research Chair in String Theory and Mathematical Physics at CAMGSD, a research center of the Department of Mathematics of IST.

This Chair was made possible by joint funding from the Portuguese Science Foundation (FCT) under the Invited Research Chairs initiative, the CAMGSD research center, the Department of Mathematics of IST, and IST.

To commemorate the start of this Chair, a three-day international conference on the Physics and Geometry of String Theory, entitled The IST String Fest , was held at IST on June 29 - July 1, 2009. The talks of the conference are online .
