John Cullinan

Associate Professor and Chair of Mathematics

Bard College

About Me
I have been on the faculty at Bard since 2006 (first as a visitor, then tenure-line since 2008) after teaching for a year at Colby College. Before that, I received my PhD in mathematics from the University of Massachusetts in 2005 under the direction of Siman Wong. I graduated from Bates College in 1999 with a double-major in mathematics and physics. I am from Yonkers, NY and attended the Ethical Culture Fieldston School.

My Research
My mathematical interests lie broadly in number theory, with a focus on arithmetic geometry and Galois representations. Want to know more? See my research page or cv for more information.

I keep my course material on the Bard Moodle site. If you are a current student you should have an active password. In Fall 2015 I am teaching Mathematics and Politics, Vector Calculus, and Complex Analysis.

In my non-mathematical life I race bikes. That's not quite true; I actually race, eat, breathe, sleep, and everything else bikes (road, cx, single speed, it's all great). Follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or Strava to find out more.
