He is a primal researcher of Japan Atomic Energy Agency., and a apart-time lecture of Tokyo City University. His major is thermodynamics and crystallography. His Resent interest includes a formation and shape control of a cavity named negative crystal that is formed by a precipitation of helium in ceramics. He is a Representation researcher of Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Researchï¼ˆBï¼‰Representation researcher of JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number 23246174. From 2017, he will investigate the formation mechanism of the negative crystal for three years with his colleagues. He is also interested in a reaction between solid and unstable gas phase. Now, he is trying to clarify the phenomena from the viewpoint of thermodynamics and statistical thermodynamics.
