Dr. Chung served as the Vice President, Dean of College of Engineering, Dean of Industry-Academia Cooperation, Dean of Research and Development in Chung Yuan Christian University. He received the 2021 World’s Top 2% Scientists in Chemical Engineering from Stanford University (USA) and the First Grade Reward of the Talent Scholar from National Science and Technology Council (Taiwan). He was also invited as keynote speaker and invited speaker in several international conferences recently.
Prof. Kenji OGINO
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Japan
Ogino is a full professor of Tokyo University of Agriculture and
Technology. His research has concentrated on synthesis of
semiconducting polymers and applications to photorefractive,
electroluminescent, and photovoltaic devices. Especially he is
interested in block copolymers, which can form microphase
separated nanostructures in thin films.
Dr. Ogino received his B.S. degree from Department of Reaction Chemistry, the University of Tokyo in 1986. His Ph.D. degree was given from the University of Tokyo in 1995. He started his carrier at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology as a research associate in 1986, and was appointed to current position in 2005. In 1997, he spent one year at C. K. Ober research group in Cornell University as a visiting scientist. He is also a vice-president of the Society of Fiber Science and Technology, Japan.
Prof. Kazuo Umemura
Tokyo University of Science, Japan
Umemura is a full professor of Tokyo University of Science. His
specialty is biophysics, especially, nanobioscience and
nanobiotechnology. One of his recent interests is nanoscopic
research of hybrids of biomolecules and carbon nanotubes (CNTs).
Unique structures and physical/chemical properties of the
hybrids are promising in biological applications such as
nanobiosensors and drug delivery.
Dr. Umemura received his B.S. degree in Physics from Nagoya University. His M.S. and Ph.D. degrees were given from Tokyo Institute of Technology. After working at several institutes/universities as a researcher in Japan and in China, he became a professor of Tokyo University of Science. Kagurazaka campus of Tokyo University of Science is located at the center of Tokyo, so five subway/railway lines reach in front of the campus.
