Title: Professor of Number Theory and Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Number Theory research group



Professor Dokchitser was an undergraduate and a graduate student at Trinity College, Cambridge. He then held a one-year postdoctoral position at the Max Planck Institute in Bonn before returning to Cambridge, first as a Junior Research Fellow at Gonville & Caius College and then as the Meggitt Fellow at Emmanuel College. He moved to Warwick University in 2013, and finally came to King's as a Reader in Number Theory in 2016. Since 2013 he has held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship. He was promoted to Professor in 2018.
