Research Themes

The search and clarification of new phenomena exhibited by substances with strong inter-electron interaction

Superconductivity is famous for its zero resistance and perfect diamagnetism, but its mechanisms are also interesting. In a superconductive state, the electrons in solids interact and move collectively. This is garnering attention as a rare example of quantum-mechanical effects on a macro scale. My research is aimed at the discovery and clarification of new magnetic and transport properties in such electron systems. We research superconductors, Mott insulators, etc. while taking note of the three degrees of freedom of electrons: charge, orbital, and spin.

Teaching Philosophy

I would like to educate students to be able to contribute to the development of society through a deep understanding of natural phenomena. I emphasize proactive trial and error, insight, and intellect. I would also like to cultivate human qualities that constructively and collaboratively open up the future by recognizing various ways of thinking.
