My Areas of Research

The application of non-destructive evaluation of electromagnets and sensors that use magnets

I utilize property changes and magnetic phenomena in materials that exhibit magnetic properties (ferromagnetic materials) to develop sensing technologies that use magnets to detect various physical and informational attributes. I aim to make magnetic field sensors, key devices that detect the strength and direction of magnetic fields, higher functioning, and advance research that applies these sensors in non-destructive evaluation technologies that inspect the deterioration of large structures and small defects in steel materials without causing any damage. In this way, I hope to contribute to a society that people can live in with peace of mind.

My Teaching Philosophy

I guide students to learn a broad range of fundamental knowledge related to magnetic materials and magnetic engineering, as well as the surrounding measurement and assessment technologies, and to think with their own heads to plan and act.
