My name is Alan McLeay. I am a postdoc in the Mathematics Research Unit at the Université du Luxembourg with Hugo Parlier. I obtained my PhD at the University of Glasgow under the supervision of Tara Brendle.

My research is in the area of geometric group theory and low dimensional topology. I am particularly interested in mapping class groups. This includes braid groups and ‘big’ mapping class groups.
