Donghyun Shin received his Ph.D. in 2011 from Texas A&M University, College Station, TX. His Ph.D. research involved developing advanced nanomaterials for thermal energy storage applications. He successfully synthesized novel nanomaterials whose specific heat capacity was anomalously enhanced. This was the first demonstration of specific heat capacity enhancement in the literature for nanomaterials. Prior to that, he was a research engineer in Stirling Technologies Inc. His research involved developing solar powered refrigerator using a hybrid storage system. He received his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Hanyang University (South Korea) in 2006 and M.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Ohio University in 2008. His Master’s work involved using carbon nanofiber nanocomposite as an electrode in electrostatic precipitator. His current research interests lie in developing molten salt nanomaterials as thermal energy storage and heat transfer fluid in energy systems.
