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] uic.edu.

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.

In Spring 2022, I was a UIC NSF TRIPODS Graduate Fellow.

In Summer 2019, I was a UIC NSF RTG Pre-doctoral Fellow.

In Fall 2022, I am a TA for Math 110 and Math 125.

My office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-10am in the MSLC.

At UIC, I have been an Instructor for the following courses:

- MATH 294 Emerging Scholars Workshop for MATH 215 (Introduction to Advanced Mathematics)
*(Spring 2021) (Fall 2021)*(about the ESP program at UIC) - MATH 179 Emerging Scholars Workshop for Calculus I
*(Spring 2020)* - MATH 090 Intermediate Algebra
*(Fall 2020)* - Summer Enrichment Workshop in Mathematics - MATH 090
*(Summer 2020)*

At UIC, I have been a TA for the following courses:

- MATH 180 Calculus I
*(Spring 2019)* - MATH 110 College Algebra
*(Fall 2019, Fall 2021)* - MATH 090 Intermediate Algebra
*(Fall 2018)*

Since 2019, I have been teaching for Math Circles of Chicago, one of many math circles around globe. Math Circles of Chicago provides free after-school programs for 5-12th graders across Chicago designed to help kids (especially those from underpriviledged backgrounds) explore interesting and meaningful mathematics that they might not see otherwise in the classroom.

During my time as an undergraduate at Carnegie Mellon University, I was a TA for:

- 15-251 Great Theoretical Ideas in Computer Science
*(Fall 2017, Spring 2018)* - 21-127 Concepts of Mathematics
*(Spring 2016)*

Outside of mathematics, I enjoy making music, reading and exercising.

I am a covenant member of Church of the Beloved, where I also serve on staff part-time as the Production Manager.
