My Areas of Research
The research and development of highly functional metal materials
Casting is a metal processing method in which molten metal is poured into molds, and it is used to manufacture a wide variety of everyday objects, such as Nambu ironware, automobile and truck parts, utility hole covers, and so on. Because the metal is melted, it is easy to add various elements to it, making it suitable for the development of new highly functional metal materials. My research group strives to develop metal materials that have never existed before, as well as friction stir welding technologies, by making use of casting and melting technologies.
My Teaching Philosophy
I educate students so that they can develop the fundamental knowledge in casting engineering, welding engineering, and metal sciences needed to develop highly functional metal materials, and so that their research can contribute to society.
