Professor Flynn has been a tutorial Fellow in Pure Mathematics at New College since 2005. Previously, his PhD (in the area of Number Theory) was at the University of Cambridge. He has previously held academic positions at the University of Michigan, the University of Cambridge and the University of Liverpool.
Prof Flynn tutors a wide range of topics to the first and second year students, including: linear agebra, group theory, rings and fields, real analysis and number theory. He also tutors third and fourth year advanced topics in Number Theory, including Algebraic Number Theory and Elliptic Curves.
Prof Flynn's main area of research is Number Theory. In particular, he works on the theory of elliptic curves and Jacobian varieties of curves of higher genus.
