Maxime Fortier Bourque

I am a Lecturer in Pure Mathematics at the University of Glasgow.
Before that, I was a Coxeter Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto.
I received my PhD from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, under supervision of Jeremy Kahn.
My research interests are in Teichmüller theory, complex analysis, and hyperbolic geometry.
