准教授 野村 M. 慎一郎 Shin-ichiro M. NOMURA


NOMURA M. Shin-ichiro received his B.S. degree from theShizuoka University (1997), M.S. degree from the Nagoya University(1999), and Dr. of Science degree from the Kyoto University (2002). He then spent five years in Tokyo Medical & Dental University as post-doc and Research Associate Professor (junior). Next, he spent three years in iCeMS, Kyoto Univ. (2008-2011). Then he joined the TOHOKU University. He is now also a researcher of JST PRESTO (Structures and control of interfaces).
