Biography

Prof. Soshu Kirihara is a doctor of engineering and a professor of Joining and Welding Research Institute (JWRI), Osaka University, Japan. In his main investigation Materials Tectonics for environmental improvements of Geotechnology, multi-dimensional structures were successfully fabricated to modulate energy and materials flows effectively. Ceramic and metal components were fabricated directly by smart additive manufacturing, design, and evaluation (Smart MADE) using high power ultraviolet laser lithography. Original stereolithography systems were developed, and a new start-up company SK-Fine was established through academic-industrial collaboration.
