Shin has investigated nanostructures of one- and two- dimensional systems in atomic-scale. He discovered unknown reconstructions of Si vicinal surfaces with metal atoms and unusual electronic structures in graphene and MoS2 monolayers, using scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy which provide spatial and electronic structures of surfaces in atomic-scale. He has also performed experiments and analysis of physical properties in a low-dimensional system with various methods; low-energy electron diffraction, angle-resolved photoemission and density functional theory. Shin experienced both physics-oriented and material-function-oriented fields. He joined the Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS), Institute for Basic Science (IBS) located at Ewha Womans University in September 2017.
