S.-H. Dan Shim, 심상헌, 沈相憲
I am a planetary scientist, a geophysicist, a mineralogist, and a materials scientist. I study materials under extreme conditions of the planetary interiors using experimental and computational methods. I then model the planetary interiors from the materials properties to understand the evolution and dynamics of planets.
I am interested in comparative planetary science. I collaborate with planetary scientists and astrophysicists to understand how materials in the deep interiors of planets can result in diverse chemical and physical evolution of planets.
ASU is an exciting place to conduct such research because of collaborative environment at School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE), a new initiative in Materials of the Universe (MOTU), and Facility for Open Reserch in a Compressional Environment (FORCE).
I also develop education contents in open-source computational framework. I enjoy teaching data analysis and computation. I am particularly interested in linking research and education. Some of those materials can be found in the resources section of this website.
