Motivation for Becoming a Researcher

I like to implement my own ideas through manual work, and became more interested in materials science through studies at the university. I was not satisfied with the level of knowledge gained as an undergraduate and decided to continue on to the doctoral course. I am interested in the fabrication and characterization of materials, and I enjoy doing it every day.

Your Greatest Strengths

I have a great deal of curiosity and the patience to achieve my goal through many trials. I am an extrovert and can adapt quickly to new environments. I can solve any problem by considering all possibilities and working together with team members. Another one of my strengths is my physical fitness.

What Makes Your Research Interesting or Worthwhile

I feel happy when the results of my experiments are as expected. In the event of unknown or strange results, I consider various factors and repeat the test again and again. It is the most wonderful feeling when I can solve a problem after several failures and everything suddenly becomes clear, This is also the attraction of research.

Other Research That Interests You

As we know, some oxynitride powders are difficult to sinter and densify. I want to continue my research to find an optimum method for sintering ceramics with excellent dielectric properties and densification at low sintering temperature. Furthermore, I hope I can learn to sinter every kind of oxynitride powder by understanding the sintering mechanisms. In the future, my hope is that I can contribute to society through scientific research and become a bridge of friendly relations between China and Japan.

Interests Other Than Research You Would Like to Pursue

I enjoy badminton, which I have played since I was in junior high school. I also love travelling and would like to travel around the world to experience the different cultures, scenery, and delicious cuisines.

Principal Work History:

I graduated from the Department of Materials Science at Harbin University of Commerce on October 2009. Thereafter, I came to Japan to enroll in graduate school. In 2015 I completed the doctoral course in the Department of Functional Materials Science, Saitama University, and received my Ph.D. degree. The title of my thesis was “Study on nonradiative centers in oxynitride phosphors by the two-wavelength photoluminescence excited method.” I have served in my current position since November 2015. Now my main topic of research is on reducing the sintering temperature of dielectric materials using low melting temperature glasses as sintering aids in order to achieve high density dielectric ceramics.
