Prof. Dong Hui Zhang graduated from Fudan University of China in 1985, and received his Ph. D. from New York University, USA in 1994. He had worked as a postdoctoral research associate in New York University and The University of Chicago. He started his professional career at Department of Computational Science, National University of Singapore in 1997, first as an Assistant Professor, and was prompted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2000. Since 2004 he has been a Professor in Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics.

Prof. Zhang’s primary research focuses on developing theoretical dynamics methods to study chemical reactions and related dynamics processes, in close interaction with experiment. The aims of our studies are to unveil the fundamental mechanisms of chemical reactions and to investigate chemical reactions of importance in combustion, atmospheric, and heterogeneous processes. We have played a pivotal role in developing quantum reactive scattering into its current stage where all dynamical information for most triatomic reactions and some simple tetraatomic reactions can be affordably calculated. For systems involving more than four atoms, we pursue dynamical results as accurate as possible by using reduced dimensionality approaches with the limit to the current computer power. We are also interested in constructing highly accurate potential energy surfaces for systems of chemical interesting on which accurate dynamics calculations can be carried out.
