Alan Zhang


My name is Yi (Alan) Zhang and I’m a third-year UW student double majoring in applied and computational mathematical sciences and economics, and triple minoring in statistics, education, and neural computation and engineering! With genuine interdisciplinary interests in mathematics, engineering, education, and behavioral sciences, I want to be a leading mathematics and science educator who promotes individualized learning, effective assessment, and inspirational instruction in American classrooms.

I grew up in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong – four huge modern cities in Southern China – before immigrating to the United States with my family and residing in Bellevue, WA, since 2012. I am incredibly honored to be a Corbett Scholar and be sponsored to study abroad at UBC the next academic year.
