Ying Chen, male, male, born in 1970, Ph.D. in 1997 from Peking University. Post-doc in IHEP from 1997 to 1999. Research Associate in the University of Kentucky from 2002 to 2003. Areas of Research: theoretical particle physics and his research field is the numerical study of lattice QCD. Achievement and Experience:
His research interest is the lattice QCD study of the strong interaction and hadron physics. He has published more than 50 physics papers with more than 1000 citations. His work on the glueball spectrum has aroused extensive attention in the particle physics community, and the corresponding paper has been cited 208 times till now. The result was also quoted by the Particle Data Group continuously in the 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012 versions of Review of Particle Physics. For the first time in the world, he carried out direct lattice calculations of the partial widths and branch ratios of J/psi radaitvely decaying into glueballs, which provide additional theoretical information for identifying glueball states in experiments. He also did other interesting researches on the light hadron spectroscopy, such as the non-existence of pentaquark states and the possibility of Theta+ state. His work on the excited nucleon states claims that the Roper states can be the first radial excitation of nucleon.
