The Department Welcomes Oleg Gang
Since childhood, science for me was much more than knowledge, I engaged emotionally, and it amazed me how seemingly different ideas and phenomena were interconnected. That inspired me to study physics and participate in research on light emitting semiconductors, hoping to appreciate the big picture and gain a unified view of the world. I completed my M.S. in Israel, specializing in spectroscopy of deep atomic levels and peculiar electron transitions. Although those studies were intellectually stimulating, they had an “observing” character and I quickly realized that I wanted a more active role in “shaping” the systems and the ways they can be probed. Thus, I was thrilled when I uncovered the richness of soft matter materials and that they offer an “active participation”.
