He received several grants for research funds and research equipment from the National Science Foundation (NSF), NASA, Boeing Cooperation, and the Navy for a total of over $3.2 million dollars. He was a consultant for the Navy from 1994-2018. He was hired as a Distinguished Summer Faculty Fellow at The Navy Facilities Engineering Services Center (NFESC) in the summers of 2010-2018. He became an American Society of Materials (ASM) Fellow in 2005. He was an invited speaker in many conferences and universities including: Cambridge University, The American University in Cairo, and Paris 8 University.

Prof. Takahiro Namazu

Kyoto University of Advanced Science, Japan

Takahiro Namazureceived the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering fromRitsumeikan University, Kusatsu, Japan, in 1997, 1999, and 2002, respectively.From 2002 to 2006, he was an Assistant Professor with the Department ofMechanical and Systems Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering, theUniversity of Hyogo, Himeji, Japan. In 2007, he became an Associate Professorat the university. In 2010, he joined the Precursory Research for EmbryonicScience and Technology (PRESTO) program, “Nanosystems and Emergent Functions”of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), as a Researcher. In the JSTPRESTO program, his research project was the emergence of self-propagatingexothermic nanomaterials for future semiconductor industry and human life care.In 2016, he became a Professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering,Aichi Institute of Technology, Toyota, Japan. In 2019, he joined the KyotoUniversity of Advanced Science (KUAS), Kyoto, Japan, as a Visiting Professor.In 2020, he will become a Professor with the Faculty of Engineering, KUAS. Heis currently engaged in studies on functional film materials, such asself-propagating exothermic materials, and their applications to micro/nanoelectro-mechanical systems (NMEMS). His research interests also include thedevelopment of material testing techniques for measuring the mechanicalproperties of micro/nanoscale materials, such as carbon nanotubes and siliconnanowires, which focuses on clarifying the nanomaterials’ size effect phenomenaand these mechanisms. The evaluation of the reliability of MEMS andsemiconductor devices is included as well in his interests for realizing thedesign of ultra-long life microdevices.Dr. Namazu has earned over 20 research awards for hisoutstanding materials research results and his contributions to the evolutionof the micro/nanoscale materials science field in the world.
