Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research
Dongwoon Shin obtained his Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Utah, USA, in 2021. The central points of his Ph.D. dissertation were to investigate the fundamental mechanisms of nanoscale polymeric jetting around the lowest flow rate regime and develop a jet profile model in near-field electrospinning. During his Ph.D. study, he received the Utah Graduate Research Fellowship and Outstanding Graduate Student Researcher Award from the University of Utah. After completing his doctoral study, he joined the Department of Physical Chemistry of Polymers at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) as a postdoctoral researcher, working with Prof. Katharina Landfester. In September 2021, he was appointed to the scientific project leader position for the project of the Max Planck Twente Center for Complex Fluid Dynamics. His research at MPIP focuses on Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) 3D printing with functional nanoparticles to create multi-compartment 3D structures. He is also interested in developing machine learning models for EHD 3d printing process in order to design 3D printed structures with desired properties/functionalities.
