**PIANO**

Hello, everyone! I am Zihan Yan** **(闫子涵) from China. I study in the UK.

I am a first-year PhD student in Applied Maths and Theoretical Physics at DAMTP, University of Cambridge. Also, I have been a member of Trinity College, Cambridge since 2017.

Previously, I did my BA and MMath at Trinity College, Cambridge, as well.

The two main purposes of this site are:

- Let more people get to know me
- Share my ideas with people

I have written/taken some notes on Mathematics and Physics, ranging from A-Levels to third year undergraduate courses. I would keep updating these notes.

Furthermore, I am interested in teaching/tutoring and organizing seminars/workshops in Maths or Physics. I hope to find more people who are also interested in these. *Update: Now I am a PhD student, I offer supervisions to undergraduate Mathmos. I am supervising Part II Principles of Quantum Mechanics in 2021-2022.*

In addition, my friends and I created a science society in China (mainly for high school students and undergrads) called OmniaScientiae. Click “OmniaScientiae” in main menu for more details.
