Steve Tse received his PhD in theoretical chemistry under the guidance of Prof. Hans C. Andersen at Stanford University in 2011. During his PhD work, he focused on developing new theories and simulation tools, using statistical mechanics, for studying microscopic molecular motion in stochastic models of liquids with highly cooperative dynamics. After PhD, as a Croucher Fellow at the University of Chicago, he began his postdoctoral work with Prof. Gregory Voth and Prof. Thomas Witten to study the charge transport in both aqueous solutions as well as fuel cell membranes by molecular dynamics simulations. In particular, he developed new reactive multiscale models to understand proton/hydroxide transport. In 2015 Oct, he joined the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) as Assistant Professor. Since the start of Tse research group at CUHK Chemistry Department, his team has been studying different interfacial systems including air-water and fluid-fluid/solid interfaces. A major theme of the research has been to understand the thermodynamics and the dynamics of these systems and the relationships between the two. Recently, he has started a collaboration to understand the chemical kinetics and thermodynamics of asymmetric organic reactions.
