1. International faculty recruitment
Samantha Jenkins,
professor of Chemistry at Hunan Normal University, Changsha, China, she joined the Hunan 100 Talents Project in 2010. Research interests: Developing the theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM), hydrogen bonding, the structure of soft-matter and the aggregation behavior of silica. Samantha Jenkins has a PhD in computational and theoretical chemical physics from the University of Salford, UK. She did her undergraduate studies at Exeter University in the Theoretical Physics program. She has a broad range of international collaborators and is in the process of building a research group. Currently she is a professor at the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Hunan Normal University, Changsha, China. Her involvement in SuMo is as a guest researcher.
Steven Robert Kirk
has a PhD in Computational physics from the University of Salford, UK. He did his undergraduate studies at Cambridge University in the Nature Science program. He has carried out industrial consultancies for British Nuclear fuels and Salford Software. Currently he is a professor at the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Hunan Normal University, Changsha, China. He joined the Hunan 100 Talents Project in 2013. Steven's research interests include algorithms, GPU computing and computational materials science. One on going project is the BEACONpartnership with Samantha Jenkins from Hunan Normal University, Michael Persson and Joakim Carl?n from Eka Chemicals AB, Manolo Teixeiro from Gridcore AB and Per Nyl?n from the PTC and the Knowledge Foundation on the control of aggregation of silica nano-particles. He is the project manger for the open-source QTAIM development site AIMPAC2.
2. International faculty members
Samantha Jenkins,
ZHANG Longxi is a leading scholar in East-West cross-cultural studies. He holds an MA from Peking University and a Ph. D. from Harvard. He had taught at Harvard and the University of California, Riverside, and is currently Chair Professor of Comparative Literature and Translation at City University of Hong Kong. He is an elected foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities, a member of the Executive Council of the International Comparative Literature Association, and an Advisory Editor of New Literary History. His research interests are East-West cross-cultural studies, and his major book publications include The Tao and the Logos: Literary Hermeneutics, East and West (Durham: Duke University Press, 1992); Mighty Opposites: From Dichotomies to Differences in the Comparative Study of China (Stanford: Stanford University Press, 1998); Out of the Cultural Ghetto (Hong Kong: Commercial Press, 2000; Beijing: Joint Publishing Co., 2004, in Chinese); Allegoresis: Reading Canonical Literature East and West (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 2005); Unexpected Affinities: Reading across Cultures (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2007); An Introduction to Comparative Literature (Shanghai: Fudan University Press, 2009, in Chinese); and most recently, A Spiritual Epic: Paradise Lost (Taipei: Net and Books, 2010, in Chinese). He is now the guest-professor of HNU.
Prof. Shing-Tung Yau
Shing-Tung Yau has made fundamental contributions to differential geometry which have influenced a wide range of scientific disciplines, including astronomy and theoretical physics. With Richard Schoen, Yau solved a longstanding question in Albert Einstein's theory of relativity by proving that the sum of the energy in the universe is positive; their proof has provided an important tool for understanding how black holes form. In 1982 Yau was awarded the Fields Medal, the highest award in mathematics, and in 1994 he shared with Simon Donaldson of Oxford University the Crafoord Prize of the Royal Swedish Society, in recognition of his "development of nonlinear techniques in differential geometry leading to the solution of several outstanding problems." He is now the Honorary Professor of HNU.
