Valerian Hall-Chen

Group Manager

I am Group Manager of the Plasma Physics and Energy Group at the Institute of High Performance Computing, A*STAR. I am also Principal Investigator of the growing fusion energy team; we work with international collaborators to make fusion energy a reality. We are currently looking to recruit interns and PhD students; please reach out to me at valerian.hall-chen [at] if interested.


I hold a BA in Natural Sciences (Physics) from the University of Cambridge. I completed a DPhil in Theoretical Physics from the University of Oxford under the supervision of Felix Parra and Jon Hillesheim.
