Research background

My research interest lies on the investigations of materials surfaces and interfaces, along with related chemical and physical reactions.
I joined at an experimental laboratory at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan) from April 2017 to September 2020 and studied about photocatalysis under the supervision of Dr. Akira NAKAJIMA. The title of my master’s thesis was “Study on photoinduced charge transfer and organic compound adsorption of WOx-modified Ti-doped hydroxyapatite”. Besides, I also studied about Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics method under Dr. Mitsutake OSHIKIRI at National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS, Japan) for 6 months in total in the period of 2018-2020.
