Education Background

Research Topic

Research interests are focused on the following areas: synthesis and living anionic polymerization of new functional monomers, precise synthesis of architectural polymers such as block polymers, graft polymers, comb-like polymers, chain-end-and in-chain-multi-functionalized polymers, star-branched polymers, and dendrimer-like star-branched polymers, surface nanostructure control and analyses, and nanoscale self-organization and supra-molecular assemblies created from multi-phase polymers with well-defined and precisely controlled structures.
