Medical Physics, Soft Matter Physics
I work to measure things that seem impossible to measure, and to explain the physics of complex phenomena (for which there seems to be no rules) in numbers and formulas. For this reason, disease—a dynamic, complicated process among biological phenomena—is a major theme of my research. In particular at Kyoto University, I cooperate with clinical medicine researchers with the aim of using physics to elucidate illness.
What I like about my science
The surprise and emotion of understanding something from the viewpoint of physics
Researcher Q & A
