He worked in the Laboratory of Professor Shozo Yanagida (Osaka University, Japan) for two years, and in the Laboratory of Professor Michael Grätzel, at the Swiss federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne as a postdoctoral scientist for over three years, where his efforts focused on the progress of high-efficiency dye-sensitized solar cells. He is currently professor at University of Hyogo from 2007, making new printable cost-effective solar cells, including non-vacuum-processed silicon solar cells and perovskite solar cells. He has published around 100 papers with total citation over 12,000.
