Hi! I'm a fifth-year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I am fortunate to be advised by James Freitag. You can reach me at kzhou23 [at]
My CV is available here.


My research interests lie in mathematical logic, more specifically model theory. I'm currently working on connections between model theory, computational learning theory, and finite combinatorics.
