Messages to Students
Currently my research target is mainly the technologies utilizing supercritical water. However, students with any research background are welcome to join in my laboratory. Even if you are not familiar with supercritical fluids right now, please do not hesitate to consult me. I am waiting for the students who are really eager to study here.
