Professor Robert Sang is the Dean Academic of the Griffith Sciences Group. Professor Sang is an experimental quantum physicist and he co-founded the Attosecond Science Group at Griffith University. He has published over 100 peer-reviewed research articles in the discipline of atomic physics and his current research involves the applications of ultra-short laser pulses of light to the experimental observation of the dynamics of electrons in atoms and molecules which occurs at the time scale of attoseconds (one attosecond is a billion-billionth of a second). The outcomes of this research are diverse and ranges from the development of new coherent x-ray sources, the testing of fundamental quantum theories, to applications in structure determination of complex molecules. Professor Sang has held posts as a Max-Planck Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Munich, ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship and visiting scientist to the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo. Professor Sang is an experienced academic leader in Griffith University with roles such as the acting Pro Vice Chancellor of Griffith Sciences, Dean (Research) of Griffith Sciences, Dean (Learning and Teaching) of Griffith Sciences, Head of School (Natural Sciences), Deputy Head (Research) School of Biomolecular and Physical Sciences and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Quantum Dynamics.
