These fellowships were created to recognize and provide support for members of the faculty whose continuing achievements and current activities in scholarship, research, or the fine and performing arts are nationally distinguished. The Charles H. Gershenson Distinguished Faculty Fellowships are part of the benefaction to Wayne State University by Charles H. Gershenson, who formerly served on the Board of Governors.
Dr. Zhang received his award at the WSU Academic Recognition Ceremony on April 24, 2014. According to the program,
Professor Zhimin Zhang is a highly regarded research scientist who has gained international recognition in the field of computational and applied mathematics for his development of the Polynomial Preserving gradient Recovery (PPR) method. He was the Changjiang Scholar Professor at Sun Yat-sen University from 2010-13, XiaoXiang Scholar Distinguished Guest Professor at Hunan Normal University from 2003-09, and distinguished visiting scientist at the Beijing Computational Sciences Research Center in 2012 and 2013. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, and currently serves on seven journal editorial boards. His research has been supported continuously since 1996 by the National Science Foundation. To date, he has published 86 papers, and the majority of his manuscripts appear in highly prestigious journals. The fellowship award will support new directions of research for Zhang, including the development of new mathematical tools to study the superconvergence phenomenon and its impact in scientific computing.
