1) I am eager to study 'XYZ' and thus expand my knowledge about the underlying theory of 'ZXP'

2) I am eager to study 'XYZ'and thus expand my knowledge in the underlying theory of 'ZXP'

Basically do I use 'about' or 'in'

I would say number 1 makes more sense. Also I'd remove the word underlying because it really adds nothing to the sentence .
