Shannon Yee is a PhD Candidate in Mechanical Engineering at the University of California Berkeley working on developing novel thermoelectric materials by leveraging recent scientific discoveries at nanoscale organic-inorganic interfaces. He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in 2007 and his M.S. in Nuclear Engineering in 2008 from The Ohio State University. In 2007, he was named a U.S. DOE Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) Fellow for his work on nuclear fuel cycle dynamics. In 2008, he was named a Hertz Foundation Fellow to support his PhD in developing the next generation of energy technologies. In 2010, Shannon was named the first U.S. DOE Advanced Research Project Agency Energy (ARPA-E) Fellow where he helped to shape ARPA-E during its inaugural year.
