# About Me

*Brian Li*

*Introduction*

Introduction

My name is Brian Zhengyu Li and I am currently a 4th-year/senior student at University of Toronto Mississauga. I am pursing a Bachelor of Science degree with a Mathematics specialist.

My main research interest lies in combinatorics, graph theory, and automated reasoning while maintaining an open mind to explore various other branches of mathematics and computer science. I am motivated to use techniques in symbolic computation and machine learning to shed light on mathematical problems where possible.

I am also involved in leading student clubs and societies, such as the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Society (MCSS) and UTM Society for Algorithmic Modelling (UTMSAM). I co-founded UTMSAM back in 2019 and served as the president.
