In this thesis, we study lower bounds on maximum matchings in 1-planar graphs. We expand upon the tools used for proofs of matching bounds in other classes of graphs as well as some original ideas in order to find these bounds. The first novel results we provide are lower bounds of maximum matching in 1-planar graphs as a function of their minimum degree.
