Guoyin Shen
HPCAT Director
E-mail: gshen@ciw.edu
Phone: 630-252-0429

Guoyin Shen's research covers a broad range of subjects aimed at understanding the behavior of materials under high-pressure and extreme temperature conditions. The research activities include investigation of phase transformations and melting lines in molecular solids, oxides and metals; characterization of liquids and amorphous materials under high-pressure/temperature conditions; measurement of crystal chemistry, elastic and transportation properties of deep Earth materials at pressure-temperature conditions equivalent to the Earth’s interior. His current research includes the study of structure and density of silicate liquids at high pressure and melting temperature determinations of silicates and iron alloys at Megbar pressures.
