Biography

Dan (Sang-Heon) Shim is an associate professor at School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU. He earned his Ph.D. in geosciences from Princeton University in 2001. He spend two years at the University of California at Berkeley as a Miller Research Fellow. He joined MIT in 2003 as an assistant professor and was promoted to an associate professor in 2008. He moved to ASU in 2012 as an associate professor. His research interests are centered on the physical and chemical properties of materials at high pressures and temperature, and the structure and evolution of Earth and planetary interiors.

Research Interests

Dan Shim is a mineral physicists interested in the evolution, structure, and dynamics of the interiors of Earth and planets. He studies the chemical reaction, element partitioning, volatile storage, phase transitions, and physical properties of materials at the pressure and temperature conditions of Earth and planetary interiors by combining a wide range of high pressure techniques (laser-heated diamond-anvil cell and multi anvil press) with variety of analytical techniques (synchrotron X-ray, laser spectroscopy, aberration corrected electron microscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry). His recent research includes phase transitions in the deep interiors of Earth and exoplanets, electronic transitions of iron in mantle silicates, volatiles storage in deep planetary interiors, redox conditions of deep planetary interiors, and structural changes in amorphous silicates at high pressure.
