View Curriculum Vitae

Dr Derek Ho is a theoretical physicist working primarily in the field of condensed matter physics. He received his PhD in Physics from the National University of Singapore in 2014 where his research work focused on quantum transport in time-dependent systems. Prior to joining Yale-NUS College, he was a research fellow at the Centre for Advanced Two-dimensional Materials, a co-appointment he continues to hold today. Dr Ho’s current research revolves around electronic transport in low-dimensional systems and quantum chaos.
