Assistant Professor of Chemistry, NYU Shanghai; Global Network Assistant Professor, NYU
Xiang Sun is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry, NYU Shanghai; Global Network Assistant Professor, NYU. Prior to joining NYU Shanghai, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from Brown University and a BS in Chemical Physics from the University of Science and Technology of China.
Professor Sun is interested in developing theoretical and computational methods for modeling chemical dynamics in complex molecular systems such as liquids, surfaces, biological molecules, and nanomaterials. His main goal is to obtain a molecular-level understanding of how electronic and vibrational excitation can influence the mechanisms and outcomes of chemical reactions at the atomistic level.
