Kyoto University Institute for Advanced Study (KUIAS)／Program-Specific Assistant Professor
Field of Research：soft matter physics, physics of life
Akihisa Yamamoto started working as a researcher in the Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (WPI-iCeMS) in Kyoto University in 2013. After receiving a doctoral degree from Kyoto University in 2015, he continued his work at iCeMS until 2017 and the department of medicine in Kyoto University until 2018 as a postdoc. He was then appointed Assistant Professor in 2018 in the Center for Integrative Medicine and Physics, Institute for Advanced Study of Kyoto University. His research topics are soft matter physics and physics of living systems. His research aims to characterize the structure and physical properties of the soft interface in a quantitative manner with the real-space methods and reciprocal-space methods, and to shed light on the mechanics and dynamics of cell and tissue that play a critical role in medical science.
Received awards include Baden-Wurttemberg Stipendium Scholarship (2012).
