Background


Dr. Mulcahy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Spelman College, in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been at Spelman College since 1988, getting a year off in Regensburg, Germany (1991-92) for good behaviour, a sabbatical leave (1997-98) and an unpaid leave at St. Louis University in Madrid (2002-03). He served as the department chair 2003-06.

He obtained two degrees from University College Dublin (Ireland) at a young age. Later, some 3000 miles west of Dublin, he was given the third degree (and a fourth) by Cornell University, where he was the 18th of Alex F.T.W. Rosenberg's 21 Ph.D. students (see here also).

Mathematics and/or life has also taken him to Germany and Hawaii (for two years each), Spain (one year) and Cuba (two terrific trips).

Before coming to Spelman, he surfed on the faculty at The University of Hawaii at Manoa (in Honolulu), and taught for a year at Emory University (in Atlanta).
