We are a research group working in the field of
fluid dynamics. Our current topics are
on jets, bubbles, and drops.
We invent novel technologies for clinical applications
(e.g. needle-free injection system) and
industrial devices (e.g. a generator of highly-viscous jets).

  • * A postdoctoral researcher position is now opened. Please contact here if interested.
