Chen-Hsuan Hsu received his PhD degree in Physics at the University of California, Los Angeles, US. He worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at RIKEN, Japan and was later promoted to the Research Scientist position. He returned to Taiwan for his current position after a short stay at the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP), Kyoto University. He works on theoretical condensed matter, with a focus on quantum phenomena and quantum matter in nanoscale systems.  
Dr. Hsu was determined to become a physicist since his childhood after reading some scientists’ biographies. Although he sadly found out the scientists in the books were not exactly as he had imagined, he feels grateful to be able to maintain his values and be himself despite external pressure. 
When working at RIKEN, he proposed a setup based on high-order topological insulators to realize topological zero modes, providing the basis for future technology such as topological quantum computing. In addition, his work
cover the quantum transport properties of one-dimensional systems such as nanowires and topological boundary channels, as well as low-dimensional systems including quantum Hall states, carbon nanotubes, and quantum dots.
Dr. Chen-Hsuan Hsu joined the Institute of Physics as an Assistant Research Fellow in September, 2022.
