This corner focuses on a person who has made remarkable achievements at NITech.
Dr. Razavi Khosroshahi Hadi (Iran)
Specially Appointed Assistant Professor
Advanced Ceramics Research Center, Nagoya Institute of Technology
I completed my degree in Materials Science & Engineering in 2013. I studied in Kyushu University, Fukuoka for seven years from undergraduate to master and finally Ph.D. Through these years I mainly studied about steel, light metals, ceramics, and composite materials. My supervisor, Professor Kenji Kaneko is well known in transmission electron microscopy (TEM) field and consequently I worked my thesis on high-resolution TEM, scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and its related techniques such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), high angle annular dark field (HAADF) and electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS). After graduating from university, I started my new career in the German company, Bosch GmbH. I worked in Bosch for two years, and gained valuable experiences in automotive industry. After that I had a chance to come back to university and it is my great pleasure that I am able to work with Professor Masoyoshi Fuji and Associate Professor Takashi Shirai’s group in Advanced Ceramics Research Center, Nagoya Institute of Technology. As an assistant professor, I am pleased to conduct various research topics on ceramics. In our research group we mainly work on hollow nano-particles, non-firing ceramics, gel casting method, and microwaves. Despite its name, Advanced Ceramics Research Center is located at Tajimi Gifu prefecture and is about 20 minutes away from Tsurumai campus by train. Our center is next to the Tajimi station and I believe that it is one of the best-equipped centers for ceramic research.
To those students or researchers who are considering Japan and in particular NITech, I strongly recommend coming and experiencing what I did. I will never forget my arrival in Tokyo during the beautiful cherry blossoms blooming week when I first came to Japan and I still remember the friendly welcome and orientation I received from university staff on my very first day. Studying in Japan provided an opportunity to me to meet a lot of people either in my dormitory or in my university, some of them became my lifetime friends. During my student time in Japan, every day was refreshing, exciting and offering me lots of new experiences. I believe that those who come to Japan will enjoy the opportunity to study Japanese as well as studying and doing research. I consider Japan as my second home because that’s where I developed many academic and social skills to be a responsible adult and learnt how to be independent. In our research center we have many foreign students from other countries and all students and staff no matter what the nationality is work and study together.
Finally, I would like to invite students and researchers all over the world to visit our university and consider it as their future destination for guarantying a bright future for themselves.
