Name: Wei Kong
Area of Study / Position Title: Professor in Physical Chemistry
Why chemistry? (What about it initially interested you?): Not much interest in chemistry initially, particularly O chem. Only wanted to do laser spectroscopy because of the mathematics involved.
Research focus (in non-science terms) or basic job duties? Develop a new technique to determine structures of macromolecules, and along the way, understanding fundamental properties of related physical processes.
One thing you truly love about your job? The freedom to imagine
One interesting/strange factoid about yourself. I do not like and cannot stand watching any games on baseball or golf.
