Presentation title: Controlled synthesis and electronic applications of 2.5D materials
Hiroki Ago received his PhD from Kyoto University in 1997. After staying at Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University during 1997-1999 as a postdoc researcher, he moved to National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Tsukuba as a researcher.
In 2003, he moved to Kyushu University and now is a distinguished professor of Kyushu University. His current research focuses on science and applications of nanomaterials, particularly graphene and related 2D materials. He has published over 170 articles. He received Iijima Award from the Fullerene-Nanotube Research Society of Japan (2006), Young Scientist Award from the MEXT, Japan (2008), and Best Paper Award from the Japan Society of Applied Physics (2014). Now he is a leader of the MEXT project “Science of 2.5 Dimensional Materials”.
