Research Themes

Contributing to society through the research of metal corrosion

Metal corrosion is a threat to the safety and security of our lives, and also leads to great economic losses. Society has many needs, such as determining why things rust, how to prevent it, and how to detect it. My research aims to resolve these questions based in the knowledge of chemistry, thus contributing to society. I have recently been moving forward with research related to energy materials in particular, such as heat pump systems, fuel cells, and lithium ion battery materials.

Teaching Philosophy

I would like to cultivate a sense of social responsibility for engineers by focusing on pragmatic research themes based on social needs. I also aim to produce flexible technicians, backed by broad education and advanced specialized knowledge.
