YANG Yonggang is a professor of the Institute of Laser Spectroscopy of Shanxi University. He received his PhD in theoretical chemistry in 2008 from the Free University of Berlin. Then he was a postdoctoral fellow in theoretical chemistry in the University of Basel. He became an associate professor of Shanxi University in 2010 and a full professor in 2017. His research interests include the theory of laser-induced ultrafast electronic and nuclear dynamics in molecules, hydrogen bonding and proton transfer, and vibrational spectra of small molecules via multi-dimensional quantum simulations. He has been selected as a fellow of the Hundred-Talent Program of Shanxi Province and a young talent of "SanJin Talents" Support Program.
