CV of Dr. Shimpalee


Ph. D., University of South Carolina, Columbia, 2001
M. S., Bradley University, 1998
B. S., Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 1992


Dr. Shimpalee's current research is in the area of renewable energy including fuel cells, energy storage, high temperature thermal system, and bioenergy. His expertise is to use multi-scale and multi-dimensional modeling combine with electrochemistry to understand the physics inside their complex systems particularly in the transport phenomena.
