Dr. Takahiro KUNIMINE is currently a research assistant professor for a project of Elements Strategy Initiative for Structural Materials at Kyoto University, Japan from 2015. He received his doctoral degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan in 2011 with a project focused on bulk nanostructured metallic materials processed by severe plastic deformation. Specifically this work entailed analysis of deformation mechanism of bulk nanostructured metallic materials in terms of thermally activated dislocation process. He was a research assistant professor at Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan from 2011 to 2013. After that, he was a research associate at University of Washington, USA from 2013 to 2015. His research interests are on physics of crystal defects, strength of materials and materialography for metals, alloys, ceramics and composites. His research experiences also include materials processing, machining of materials and synthesis of nanoparticles.
