Jingsong Huang received his bachelor's degree in Chemistry in 1991 and master's degree in Physical Chemistry in 1994. Prior to study abroad, he worked as an engineer in chemical industry. He earned his Ph D in Physical Chemistry from Georgetown University in 2006. Initial background was experimental Organic Chemistry and Physical Chemistry. Afterwards he decided to pursue theoretical research using computational chemistry. Research interests are mainly the theoretical studies of the electronic, optical, and magnetic properties of solid-state and low-dimensional materials, chemical reaction mechanism, and electrical energy storage. With a background of an experimental chemist and the expertise of a computational and theoretical chemist, his primary goal is to establish the bridge between experimental observations and theoretical rationalizations, which will hopefully lend supports for experimental materials optimizations.
