I am currently working on superconductivity and 2D materials at the Department of Applied Physics in the University of Tokyo. In the Ph.D. course, I discovered a series of novel phenomena related to quantum physics (esp. superconductivity) and symmetry-breaking based on 2D materials as post-graphene materials, which gave high impact in the field of superconductivity and create a new trend in the research of 2D superconductors. I authored 6 peer-reviewed scientific articles now as a total, and most of my first-authored articles were published in top-tier journals including Science, Nature Physics, Nano Letters, ACS Nano etc..(see below link for publication list). I gave over 20 presentations in international conferences/workshops including invited talks. Both my Bachelor's and Master's thesis were highly evaluated in each defense, and I awarded double distinguished thesis awards. ***URL***
