In Memoriam — Michael Zhao

The Department mourns the sudden and unexpected loss of its first-year doctoral student, Michael Zhao.  Michael was an outstanding undergraduate at the University of Utah.  He came here after spending a year as a Part III student in Cambridge.  Michael had made a promising start on his doctoral studies here and was planning to specialize in number theory or algebraic geometry.  He is survived by his parents, Shaoqing Song and Fuli Zhao, and by a brother, Alan Zhao.  The Department will announce a memorial gathering for him in the near future.
