Dong-Bin Shin, who recently completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Physics at UNIST, has been appointed as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Photon Science at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST).
Dr. Shin received both his Bachelor of Science degree and doctorate from UNIST. He obtained his Ph.D. in February 2019 under the guidance of Professor Noejung Park in the Department of Physics at UNIST. Through his school years at UNIST, Dr. Shin has participated in about 21 SCI-level research papers and 5 of those have been published in the top 1% journals in the related field of physics. He has also been awarded the first recipient of ‘Yebong Best Dissertation Award,’ an award given to the author of the best doctoral dissertation. Upon graduation, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg, Germany.
Dr. Shin’s research interests lie primarily in the area of various phenomena in condensed matter physics. Among those, his main areas of research include the Ab initio-based quantum mechanical calculation of dynamical states of matter, the non-equilibrium many-body simulation for quantum systems, as well as the development of computational package and methods for density functional theory, time-dependent density functional theory, non-equilibrium green’s function, and exact diagonalization.
“I would like to return what I have received throughout my academic years at UNIST,” says Dr. Shin. “A word of special appreciation goes to my advisor Professor Noejung Park for guiding and supporting me over the years.”
