Haojun Liang was born in May 1963. He is a Professor of polymer physics at the Department of Polymer Science and Engineering, University of Science and Technology of China. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1990 from Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Changchun, China. The dissertation was on “Kinetics of phase separation and phase morphologies of polymer blends.” In 1984, he received his B.S. degree from Physics Department at Northeast Normal University, Changchun, China. Since 2002, he has been a Professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), where he was an Associate Professor in 2001. He was a Visiting Scholar at Loughborough University, UK (supported by Royal Society), in 2000–2001, and at Chinese University of Hong Kong (supported by Chourch Foundation and CUHK) in 1999–2000. During 1991–1998, he served at Liaoyang Petrochemical College. His research interests include computer simulations and numerical calculations in polymer chemistry, polymer physics, and biology. The methods used are dynamical density functional theory (DDFT), self-consistent field theory (SCFT), Monte Carlo simulation (MC), and molecular dynamic simulation (MD). His current projects include protein folding and design; application of CHARMM in biology calculations; self-assembly of block copolymers (linear or miktoarm star copolymers) in solution, in bulk, and in confined states; phase transition of single-polymer chain.
