Ke L. Han was born in Shandong province, China, in 1963. He received his Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China, in 1990. In the years 1993–1995, he worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of California and the Emory University, USA. In 1995, he became a Professor at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics. His research group is mainly interested in molecular reaction dynamics: hydrogen-bond dynamics in intermolecular electron transfer, molecular dynamics with attosecond resolution, nonadiabatic dynamics in chemical processes, and enzyme dynamics. He is the recipient of the National Outstanding Youth Foundation. In 1999, he received a first-class Natural Science Award from CAS and the Young Chemist Award from the Chinese Chemical Society (CCS). He is the Chair of the Virtual Laboratory for Computational Chemistry (VLCC), Supercomputing Center, Computer Network Information Center, CAS. He chaired the 1st Worldwide Chinese Theoretical and Computational Chemistry Conference (WCTCC) in 2000, the 2006 CAS Symposium on the Computational Chemistry and Parallel Software, the 2007 Workshop on Frontiers of Theoretical and Computational Physics and Chemistry (WFTCPC07), the 2008 Symposium on Computational Chemistry and High Performance Computing, and the 10th International Quantum Reactive Scattering (QRS) Workshop in 2009. He is a Member of the Advisory Editorial Board of the Journal of Theoretical & Computational Chemistry, Chinese Journal of Chemical Physics, Acta Physico-Chimica Sinica, Progress in Natural Science, Chinese Science Bulletin, and the Journal of Atomic and Molecular Physics.
