Thank you for visiting our group's website.

Our research group has been established at 2009 and thereafter focusing on the advanced research on all sorts of energy materials including catalysts, cathode or anode materials, thermoelectric materials and so on. As the industry all over the world becomes very sophisticated, the development of novel functional materials is getting more important. I think our way to develop the functional materials based on the insight from material simulation and its advanced analyses will be a concrete solution for the future material problem. Please check out our members’ potential as the future scientist who will solve couple of material and energy issues through this homepage.
