From a complex analytic perspective, Teichmüller space – the universal cover of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces – is a bounded domain in a complex vector space. Likewise, bounded symmetric domains arise as the universal covers of locally symmetric varieties (of non-compact type). In this talk we will look at bounded domains in their intrinsic Kobayashi metrics with a goal to contribute to the following important question: To what extent does the geometry of Teichmüller spaces resemble the geometry of bounded symmetric domains?
