Parker Glynn-Adey was born near Thunder Bay, and grew up in London, ON. He received his undergraduate degree in mathematics and philosophy from Trent University, where he got to know his professors and share in the fun of discovering mathematics together. His PhD at the University of Toronto focused on the geometry of high dimensional manifolds. He believes professors should be approachable and friendly, and that mathematics is open for everyone and anyone to explore. When he is not hiking with his family, playing with his daughter, or writing, he can be found teaching mathematics, organizing mathematics education events, or chatting with students.
