Jacob Olshansky

 

Postdoc

Jacob is from Urbana, Illinois, where he got his start in scientific research by spending his summers in corn fields carefully pollinating corn plants one at a time. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and Physics from Haverford College where he studied hydrothermal syntheses of amine-templated metal oxides. He then moved to the California to pursue his Ph.D. at UC Berkeley. His dissertation research  aimed to understand the mechanism of charge transfer from photoexctied quantum dots and was advised by Paul Alivisatos. He joined the Wasielewski group in September of 2017 and has been studying  spin dynamics of photogenerated charges in synthetic DNA.

Itai Schlesinger

Postdoc

Itai joined the Wasielewski group in August 2018 and joins us from the Physics department at Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, where he studied under Prof. Uri Sivan. His work focuses on increasing the spatial resolution of pump-probe measurements by combining optical microscopy and atomic force microscopy with the ultrafast optical setup, as well as investigating charge transport properties of organic donor/acceptor crystals.

Xingang Zhao

Postdoc

Xingang was born and grew up in Handan, Hebei province, China. Xingang did his undergraduate study at Hebei University of Technology in Tianjin, China and obtained his master degree in Institute of Petrochemistry, Heilongjiang Academy of Sciences with Prof. Chao Wang in Harbin, China. He  pursued his PhD in Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS) with Prof. Xiaowei Zhan. After worked with Prof. Fred Wudl at University of California, Santa Barbara and with Prof. Howard E. Katz at Johns Hopkins University as a Postdoc, he joined Wasielewski group in May, 2017. His research focus on the design and synthesis of new materials based largely on self-assembling singlet fission materials for solar cells.
