Biography

Dr. Eabhnat Ní Fhloinn is a lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Director of DCU Maths Learning Centre. She has undertaken this role since 2007; prior to this, she was Manager of DIT Maths Learning Centre for two years. Her PhD is in biometric cryptography from Trinity College Dublin, where she also undertook her BA in Mathematics. 

Her research interests now lie in the area of mathematics education, with particular focus on the transition from post-primary mathematics to higher education; mathematics support in higher education; mathematics diagnostic testing of incoming university students; mathematics for engineers; and assessment in mathematics.

Dr. Ní Fhloinn was the inaugural Chairperson of the Irish Mathematics Learning Support Network (IMLSN) from 2009 – 2011 and now serves as PRO on the IMLSN committee. She is a member of CASTeL, the Centre for the Advancement of STEM Teaching and Learning in DCU. 

Research Interests

Mathematics education research:
Mathematics support;
Mathematics issues at the transition from second-level to third-level;
Mathematical diagnostic testing of incoming university students;
Mathematics for engineers;
