Research Themes

The research of crystals with infinite possibilities

The development of new crystallization technologies to generate high-purity target compounds from target products and multiple byproducts is an important issue. My research themes are technologies for the synthesis of molecules that form the components of crystals, and technologies for the synthesis of crystals by arranging molecules in such a way that their properties are maximized. Crystals that contain molecules configured according to certain regulations have infinite possibilities. I engage in predictions based on a logical foundation, and research related to new crystal fabrication technologies that realize a variety of special functions, as well as new crystallization methods aimed at mass production.

Teaching Philosophy

I foster insight into the essence of various objects through research and study.
