My Areas of Research

The research of material processes based on equilibrium theory

Our daily lives are supported by a variety of metal materials. Metal materials are supplied through the mining and refining of ores, but in recent years supplies have been restricted due to decreases in ore grades, ore vein depletion, the political environment, and other similar factors. Obtaining the materials to create things is proving difficult with conventional methods. I research new metal smelting processes, metal recycling, and waste processing methods in the aim of realizing a sustainable society.

My Teaching Philosophy

Material engineering is a field with extremely broad applications. I want for students to learn how to use their education and knowledge through research and have a desire to learn with an interest in various different fields.
