Professor Haw Yang
Associate Editor: Physical Chemistry
Haw Yang attended National Taiwan University, where he was a Yuan Lee Scholar, and received a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry in 1991. After two years of mandatory military service, he attended graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley, where he worked under the supervision of Charles Harris. His Ph.D. thesis concerned the mechanisms and dynamics of photo-induced chemical bond activation by organometallic compounds. In 1999, he went to Harvard University where he worked with Sunney Xie as a postdoctoral research assistant. In 2002, he joined the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley, as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry. In 2009, he moved to Princeton University as an Associate Professor of Chemistry. He is an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow, has received the CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, the Hellman Family Faculty Award, and the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award. His research concerns chemical reactivity in complex systems, currently focusing on understanding the dynamics and function of molecular machines.
