## Hip Kuen Chong (William) [莊協權]

## Self Introduction

I am a PhD student at McGill University, starting in the academic year 2021/22. My supervisor is Prof. Daniel Wise.

I am interested in Geometric Group Theory. I am still open to different areas inside this field.

Teaching has always been an important part of my life. I enjoy teaching formal classes in high schools and universities, as well as one-to-one tutorial sessions with students.

En français: Je m'appelle William. J'étudie les mathématiques à l'université McGill. J'apprend le français depuis septembre 2021. Le français est difficile mais très interessant. J'adore le français et la culture à Montréal.

日本語で：私はウィリアムと申します。興味で日本語を勉強していますが、2023年12月に日本語能力試験N2を受けて満点を取りました。（満点って言っても、文法のミスを物凄く犯していますが、、）2024年12月にN1に挑戦します。よろしくお願いいたします！

## About the Problem Sets on the Research Page

(under construction)

Inspired by previous experience in language learning, I strongly believe that reading papers alone does not help consolidate knowledge inside the papers without follow-up questions. Therefore, I decided to add problem sets to my research papers so that one may use the problem sets to understand basic concepts. Most of the questions would be extremely easy while some may point to questions I have no idea.

While I understand that my papers are nowhere being important to the whole mathematical society, I would like to include this feature to my papers since I believe that it makes papers more accessible. It would be important for the field I am interested in to grow.

There would be some remarks for the problem sets:

I did not include them into my research papers since it would increase the length of the papers. Moreover, it is currently not a standard procedure in academia, so including that section would highly decrease the probability to get my papers being accepted in journals.

The problem sets are not peer-reviewed, so they would be of very low quality (compared with journal papers). Questions marked as "I have no idea" may have answers extremely obvious, answered by several authors decades before.

If you spot any errors in the problem sets, please kindly email me. I will correct the problem sets accordingly.

Thank you very much for reading until this point, and I wish the journey of reading my papers could be somehow more enjoyable with this feature.
