About the Author
Volume Editors Tamiki Komatsuzaki is a Professor in the Molecule and Life Nonlinear Sciences Laboratory, Research Institute for Electronic Science at Hokkaido University in Japan. His research interests include origin of selectivity and stochasticity of reactions, single-molecule biophysics, as well as protein landscape and complexity in kinetics and dynamics. Masaru Kawakami is an Associate Professor at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) School of Material Science. He specializes in biophysics, single-molecule measurement, protein folding, and structural biology, and his research focuses on single-molecule dynamics of biomolecules. Satoshi Takahashi is a Professor at the Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials, Tohoku University, Japan. His research focuses on protein folding and functional dynamics. Haw Yang is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Princeton University. His current research focuses on high-resolution quantitative single-molecule protein dynamics and real-time 3D single-particle tracking spectroscopy. Robert J. Silbey is the Class of 1942 Professor of Chemistry at MIT. His research involves theoretical studies of single-molecule spectroscopy at low temperatures, energy and electron transfer and relaxation in molecular aggregates, the optical and electronic properties of conjugated oligomers and polymers, and the transport of charge in organic systems. Series Editors Stuart A. Rice received his master's and doctorate from Harvard University and was a junior fellow at Harvard for two years before joining the faculty of the University of Chicago in 1957, where he is currently the Frank P. Hixon Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus. Aaron R. Dinner received his bachelor's degree and doctorate from Harvard University, after which he conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford and the University of California, Berkeley. He joined the faculty at the University of Chicago in 2003.
