# 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 Mathematics specialist and Statistics minor.

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

I am proficient in Python, Java, JavaScript, R, MATLAB and have gained much experiences in both academics and project implementation.

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.
