My Areas of Research
The creation of compounds of cast iron and different materials, and the development of compound technologies
Metal matrix composites (MMCs) that combine metals with other materials such as ceramics have various excellent properties, such as high strength and thermal conductivity, so they are expected to be applied to a broad range of fields, centered around applications in next-generation transportation devices and industrial machinery. My research involves the development of technologies for making ideal composites of metals and ceramics, as well as making it possible to mass-produce MMCs less expensively than conventional technologies, in order to further increase their capabilities.
My Teaching Philosophy
I educate students to be adaptable in a broad range of fields for the research and development of various organic and inorganic materials, based on a fundamental knowledge of metal materials.
