Takashi joined the group in September 2021 as a research assistant/associate. He graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017 with an MEng in Materials Science, where his final-year project involved the modelling and fabrication of optical memory and solid-state reflective displays based on phase-change materials. Takashi then moved to the Cambridge NanoDTC where he studied for an MRes Nanoscience and Nanotechnology followed by a PhD with Dr Tijmen Euser. His PhD research focussed on in-situ monitoring of photocatalytic reactions in optofluidic microreactors.
Outside the lab, Takashi enjoys rowing, cooking and getting involved with university widening participation initiatives.
Takashi’s research focuses on the development of bioinspired luminescent photonic structures to improve the efficiency of photovoltaic cells.
