Prof. Steven Shy is currently a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Institute of Energy Engineering at National Central University in Tao yuan City , Taiwan . He received a Doctoral degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the University of Washington, Seattle, U.S.A. in 1990. He held a postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton Universi ty for one and a half years and a position as Associated Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Central University before assuming his Professorship at NCU in 1997 . Prof. Shy wa s the Director of the Center for Energy Research in the College of Engineering at National Central University from 2003 to 2014 Prof. Shy served as an Associate Editor and Editorial Board Member of Proceedings of the Combustion Institute during 2008 ~ 2013 for six years He was the former Taiwan Section Chair of T he Combustion Institute during 2010 ~ 2014. Prof. Shy was elected as The Fellow of The
Combustion Institute (2019 Class).
Professor Shy has extensive research experience in various research fields. Currently, he focuses on two research fields: (1) High-pressure, high-temperature premixed turbulent combustion relevant to gas turbine conditions, including gaseous and liquid fuels, from ignition and flame propagation to flame global quenching; (2) pressurized solid oxide fuel cells and its integration with micro gas turbines for hybrid power generation. His research is conducted in both the Combustion Physics Laboratory and the Energy and Environment Laboratory at National Central University.
