Shu YIN received a B.S. degree in inorganic chemical engineering from the Dalian University of Technology, Dalian, Liaoning, China in 1987. He received an M.S. degree in chemical metallurgy from the Institute of Process and Engineering (IPE) (formerly the Institute of Chemical Metallurgy (ICM)), the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China in 1990, then worked as a Research Associate for 2 years at the ICM. He came to Japan and worked as a Research Fellow in the Hydrothermal Chemistry Research Laboratory, Kochi University, Kochi, Japan in 1992, then became a Research Assistant at the Institute for Chemical Reaction Science (ICRS, Professor T. Sato’s group), Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan during 1995–1997. He received a Ph.D. degree in applied chemistry from Tohoku University in 1999. He has been a full-time Research Assistant at the ICRS in 1999, then a Lecturer at the Institute of Multidisciplinary Research for Advanced Materials (IMRAM), Tohoku University in 2005, and then a full-time Associate Professor in 2005. He is also an Affiliate Professor of two Chinese Universities and one Institute (the Lanzhou University, the Dalian University of Technology, the Guangxi Research Institute of Chemical Industry). His research papers were cited more than 2300 times and showed a citation h-index equal to 29. He has also participated in the organization of some international conferences and acted as session chair in more than 20 international conferences. Until now, he was invited to act as independent reviewer and referee for more than 40 academic journals. His research interests include morphological control of nanostructured materials, photocatalytic materials, UV-shielding materials, hydrothermal/solvothermal process, and soft chemical synthesis. He has authored more than 200 original research papers and contributed 16 book chapters and 18 patents. He has co-authored nearly 170 international conference presentations and presented more than 20 invited talks.
