Kuang Yu is involved in the development of improved force fields for biomolecular simulation. He holds a B.S. in chemistry and statistics from Peking University and a Ph.D. in chemistry from University of Wisconsin, Madison. Kuang’s research experience and interests include classical force field development based on ab initio calculations, multi-scale MD/MC simulation technique development, electronic structure studies of molecular and material systems, and development of quantum embedding theory. Prior to joining DESRES, Kuang served as a postdoctoral researcher with the Emily Carter Group at Princeton. In his free time, he enjoys watching movies, playing computer games and badminton, and building models.
