Yan X Zhang's Academic Homepage

(If you can read that this is actually Greta's own poster, you don't need glasses)

This is the academic webpage of Yan Zhang (I publish under Yan X Zhang). I received my Ph. D. in mathematics at MIT under Richard Stanley in June 2013. Starting Fall 2013, I am a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley. I do research in a variety of problems related to combinatorics, mostly algebraic.

I am one of the co-organizers of the Berkeley Combinatorics Seminar, along with Lauren Williams and Khrystina Serhiyenko.

Currently teaching: Mathematics 185: Complex Analysis

Talks and posters:

In roughly reverse-chronological order. Research talks refer to papers and will have no additional information. Other (such as expository) talks will contain an abstract or similar information.


All teaching and misc. activities go here. My teaching style and philosophy owe greatly to two great teachers: my mother and Sanjoy Mahajan.
