Welcome to Zhe Chen (陈喆)’s Homepage!


  • I defended my Ph.D. thesis on May 1st, 2023.


I specialize in the area of Applied and Computational Mathematics. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, supervised by Professor Charles S. Peskin. I was a Henry M. MacCracken Fellowship from 2018 to 2023. Prior to my Ph.D. at NYU, I graduated from Peking University with a B.S. in Mathematics (with Honors) and a B.S. in Physics (double major), where I was part of Professor Pingwen Zhang’s research group.
