HyperSolar Hires Full Time Chief Technology Officer
 
Dr. Joun Lee Expected to Oversee University Collaboration and Spur
Development of Renewable Hydrogen Production Process 
 
SANTA BARBARA, CA  -- (Marketwired) -- 05/10/16 --  HyperSolar, Inc.
(OTCQB: HYSR), the developer of a breakthrough technology to produce
renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, announced
today that it has hired Dr. Joun Lee as the Company's Chief
Technology Officer (CTO), effective June 1, 2016.
 
Dr. Joun Lee is a chemical engineer with over 13 years of research
experience developing nano/biomaterials, advanced materials
characterization, and energy conversion and storage systems. Lee
received her Ph.D. in Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the
University of California, Riverside in 2009. As a postdoctoral
research fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Dr.
Lee studied application of novel one dimensional nanomaterials for
photovoltaics, and artificial photosynthetic systems. Dr. Lee has
extensive experience in device fabrication using cleanroom foundry
techniques and evaluation of photovoltaic/photosynthetic
performances. She has published over 20 articles in high-impact
peer-reviewed journals including Nature Nanotechnology, Nano letters,
Energy and environmental science etc.
 
Dr. Lee will be tasked with overseeing and leading development of
HyperSolar's innovative renewable hydrogen production technology. Her
current position at the University of Iowa is ideal and paramount to
day-to-day operations and advancement, as she can work directly with
the scientific team at the University that has been responsible for
many of the milestones achieved by the Company over the past year. By
committing to the full-time hiring of Dr. Lee, HyperSolar expects to
spur technological breakthroughs needed to develop a functional
prototype that will demonstrate cost-efficient solar to hydrogen
production.
 
"We are thrilled to add Dr. Joun Lee, an individual with significant
hands-on experience in energy conversion and biomaterial development,
to our team of scientists currently developing HyperSolar
technology," said Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar. "We believe Dr. Lee's
knowledge and oversight of laboratory processes will bolster not only
the speed in which we continue to achieve technological advancements,
but will address key aspects of market viability, including cost and
scalability. This hire also speaks to our long-term commitment to
working with leading universities and individuals that we believe
bring value to our Company, and whom we expect to lead scientific
execution that will seize the market opportunity created by
international demand for renewable hydrogen."
 
HyperSolar's research is centered on developing a low-cost and
submersible hydrogen production particle that can split water
molecules under the sun, emulating the core functions of
photosynthesis. Each particle is a complete hydrogen generator that
contains a novel high voltage solar cell bonded to chemical catalysts
by a proprietary encapsulation coating. A detailing the rise of
hydrogen fuel technology as well as HyperSolar's completely renewable
process of hydrogen fuel production can be viewed by visiting here.
 
About HyperSolar, Inc.
HyperSolar is developing a breakthrough, low cost technology to make
renewable hydrogen using sunlight and any source of water, including
seawater and wastewater. Unlike hydrocarbon fuels, such as oil, coal
and natural gas, where carbon dioxide and other contaminants are
released into the atmosphere when used, hydrogen fuel usage produces
pure water as the only byproduct. By optimizing the science of water
electrolysis at the nano-level, our low cost nanoparticles mimic
photosynthesis to efficiently use sunlight to separate hydrogen from
water, to produce environmentally friendly renewable hydrogen. Using
our low cost method to produce renewable hydrogen, we intend to
enable a world of distributed hydrogen production for renewable
electricity and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. To learn more about
