My name is Zilu Ma and I am a fifth year PhD student in Mathematics at UCSD.
My advisors are Professor Bennett Chow and Professor Lei Ni.
I did my undergraduate studies at Xi'an Jiaotong University.
I am interested in geometric analysis and Ricci flow in particular.

Teaching
I taught Math 18 Lecture B in Summer Session I 2021 as a Summer Graduate Teaching Scholar.
In Spring 2021, I was a TA for Math 103B working with Professor Aaron Pollack.
I have been serving as the Senior MATLAB TA for Math 18
and Math 20D since Summer Session I in 2019.
