YiPing Chen, male, born in Huaining, Anhui, Ph.D, Associate Professor. He obtained his M.S. of the specialized subject of plasma physics and controlled fusion engineering in 1987 at the 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 collaborated respectively with the scientists at the Institute for Plasma Physics, Forschungszentrum, Juelich, Germany and the university of Alberta, Canada. From 2003 to 2004, he visited at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics at Garching, Germany.
Dr. Chen 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 divertor physics for EAST superconductor tokamak, the Nation Large Science Project, he was responsible for "synthetic design research of advanced property divertor in fusion reactor" and "research for formative mechanism and properties of naturally diverted layer in a low aspect ratio tokamak fusion reactor" supported by Nation Nature Science Foundation of China.
In especial he has been making a thorough study for physics of edge plasma, limiter and divertor plasma in tokamaks for long time, he has wide academic exchanges and collaboration with the scientists at home and abroad. The major field of current study includes theoretical research and computer simulation of plasma equilibrium, plasma transport and anomalous transport, edge plasma, atomic and molecular processes in plasma, the interaction between plasma and materials and the interaction between plasma and wave, simulation of plasma experiments.
