Shuai Che is a person who is always chasing perfection. Recently Shuai has worked on a project to investigate the thermal-hydraulic and mechanical performance of a printed circuit heat exchanger (PCHE), which was developed for use with high temperature reactors. Prior to joining the Thermal Hydraulics Lab Shuai earned a Master of Science in Engineering degree from University of Michigan, when he was financially supported by the China Scholarship Council, and a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Nuclear Engineering from Harbin Engineering University.

So-Bin Cho is interested in exploring sustainable heat applications that unite system modeling, optimized decision-making, and thermal hydraulics, focusing on energy efficiency improvements. So-Bin is co-advised by Professor Todd Allen to investigate pragmatic technology options for different sectors. At the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), he earned a B.S in Physics with a minor in Economics and an M.S. in Nuclear Engineering. As an intern at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) he developed a simulation model to predict potential failures on thermal storage systems. In his free time, So-Bin loves rewatching old films, such as Forrest Gump.

Education:

KAIST
MS ’19, Nuclear Engineering
BS ’16, Physics

Research Interests:

Integrated Nuclear-Renewable Energy Systems, and non-electric applications of Gen IV reactors.
