Congratulations to Prof. Kang-Kuen Ni on her promotion to Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology and of Physics, with tenure, effective July 1, 2021!
Ni left Taiwan in 2000 for the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she obtained her B.S. in physics and later earned her Ph.D. in physics from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She joined Harvard’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department in 2013. Her research is focused on creating molecules at the lowest possible temperatures and studying their chemical reactions and physical interactions. Currently, her group is pursuing three research projects: Ultracold Molecular Assembler, Ultracold Chemical Reactions, and Dual-species Atom Quantum Simulator.
