Jang’s expertise is in the area of condensed phase quantum dynamical molecular processes. He has worked on path integral simulation, theories of energy/electron transfer, and development of new quantum master equations. His main focus at present is combining these approaches for reliable theoretical description of energy and charge flow dynamics in photosynthetic pigment-protein complexes and in various conjugated organic molecules used for plastic solar cells.

Our research focuses on using mass spectrometry and ion-molecule reaction techniques to probe biologically relevant processes in a spectrum of systems ranging from isolated biomolecules and biomolecular ions, through micelles and aerosol droplets of biomolecules, to biomolecule solution. We are also interested in discovering and developing new analytical approaches. In addition, we have related interests in computational chemistry (e.g. quasi-classical direct dynamics trajectory simulations) and nano-materials.

Prof. Uri Samuni has a doctorate in Physical Chemistry from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, and postdoctoral training at the Keck Biomolecular Laser Research Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Our research is interdisciplinary in nature involving physical chemistry, biophysics, photonics and nanophotonics. The main objective of our research is combining spectroscopy, specifically, resonance Raman and surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), sol-gel encapsulation of proteins and nanoparticles. In sol-gel encapsulation, proteins are embedded in the inert and optically transparent sol-gel matrix and yet remain functionally active. This constitutes a unique platform for the study of protein conformational dynamics and the characterization of non-equilibrium conformations as they relate to protein function. Moreover, depending on the preparative conditions, this novel photonic material lends itself to a large range of applications such as biosensors and sol-gel based nanoparticles and their biomedical applications.
