Michael Zhao Memorial Fund

Donations may now be made online to a fund in memory of Michael Zhao, a doctoral student in the Department who passed away on December 8, 2018.

Michael Zhao was an outstanding undergraduate at the University of Utah, graduating in 2017.  He completed Part III at the University of Cambridge and began here as a doctoral student in September 2018, only a few months before his tragic death.  He had planned to specialize in number theory.  Everyone here was devastated by the loss of such a promising young scholar.

Donations to the memorial fund may be made here:

Funds may be used for a physical memorial to Michael in the Department, for expenditures to benefit doctoral students in the Department, or both.  Please give generously.
