Dr. Kang is a Research Staff Member in Soft Matter Science group of IBM T.J. Watson Research Center. His focus includes biomolecular structure, dynamics and function and their relationships especially associated with various endo or exogeneous factors such as membrane, nanoparticles and drug-like molecules. He develops and applies computational and statistical mechanical approaches in order to understand underlying physics of various heteromolecular systems with a special interest on potential applications in nanomedicine and nanotoxicity. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry at University of Pennsylvania, where he devoted himself in developing computational protein design algorithms based on statistical mechanics, and modeling de novo protein function and structure especially incorporated with non-biological factors. Later, he joined IBM T.J. Watson Research Center as a Post-doctoral fellow, where he expanded his focus on novel phenomena present in nano-bio interfaces using the state-of-art molecular dynamics simulations.
