YiPing Chen, male, born at huaining in Anhui province, Ph.D, Professor of plasma physics, Doctoral supervisor. He obtained his M.S. of the specialized subject of plasma physics and controlled fusion engineering in 1987 at Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Later he obtained his Ph.D of the specialized subject of plasma physics at the institute. In November, 2000 and in August, 2002, he visited respectively at Institut fuer Energie- und Klimaforschung – Plasmaphysik, Jülich, Germany and University of Alberta, Canada for cooperative research. From 2003 to 2004, he visited at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics at Garching, Germany.
He has been studying plasma physics for many years, the major specialized subject is theoretical and computational plasma physics, computer simulation. He took part in the research on the project of the Nation 863 Plan and the research on EAST tokamak project, the national great science project. He was responsible for or involved in the projects supported by Nation Nature Science Foundation of China. He has wide academic exchanges and collaborations with the scientists at home and abroad. The current major research area includes theoretical research and computer simulation of the plasma equilibrium, the transport in core and edge plasmas, divertor physics, the atomic and molecular processes in plasma, the interaction between plasma and materials, and the computer simulation of plasmas in experiments. He carried on his research by developing and using simulation codes and the computer simulations.
He would like to enroll the M.S. and Ph.D students in the specialized subject of physics or theoretical physics, plasma physics with the research area of theoretical and computational plasma physics, computer simulation, edge plasma physics or divertor physics.
