I am a Postdoc at the Division of Applied Mathematics, Brown University, working with Professor Jan S. Hesthaven. I got my Ph.D. degree from Department of Mathematics, Purdue University in 2009 under the direction of Professor Zhiqiang Cai with a dissertation on the recovery-based a posteriori error estimators for finite element methods. Before this, I got my Bachelor and Master's degrees in mathematics from Tongji University, Shanghai, China.
At the annual meeting of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) in Denver, Colorado, July 6-10, 2009, I won the 2009 SIAM Student Paper Prize for the paper entitled "Recovery-Based Error Estimator for Interface Problems: Conforming Linear Elements", co-authored with my advisor, Professor Zhiqiang Cai.
From June 2013, I will be an assistant professor at Department of Mathematics of City University of Hong Kong. My new e-mail address is shun.zhang AT cityu.edu.hk

2821O: TOPICS IN A POSTERIORI ERROR ESTIMATIONS: FINITE ELEMENT & REDUCED BASIS METHOD
I work on numerical solutions of partial differential equations. My current research focuses on a posteriori error estimations, adaptive methods for finite element methods, and reduced basis methods.
