Dr. Dong-Myeong Shin is currently Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). He was inspired to work in nanoscience as an undergraduate researcher at Pusan National University (BS, 2009), where his work focused on the bioprotection effect of sugar glass on the living cell. He obtained his M.S (2011) and Ph.D. (2016) degrees in nanomaterials at PNU. At PNU, Dong-Myeong's research focused on the glassy dynamics of sugar in nanoconfinement, capacitive biosensor, piezoelectric and triboelectric nanogenerators. In 2016, he joined the Research Center for Energy Convergence Technology (RCECT) at PNU, where his research centered on the bioinspired sensor as a postdoctoral researcher. Following his Ph.D. and Postdoctoral research at PNU, in 2017, he moved to the University of California, Berkeley as a postdoctoral scholar. His research is dedicated to developing the single ion conducting network polymer for battery applications. Upon completion of his postdoctoral studies in the summer of 2019, Dong-Myeong traveled back to Asia to assume his current position of Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at HKU, where his group has devoted to developing the self-powered nanoelectronics, with an emphasis on important components such as energy harvesting/storage devices and bioinspired electronics.
