Shunsuke Nagahama

Assistant Professor, Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering
Despite it only recently being constructed, KUAS Faculty of Engineering is equipped with state-of-the-art machining facilities such as the Machine Workshop, fiber laser cutters, Nanoscribe machinery, and electrical discharge machinery. We provide an environment where materials can be observed and evaluated using electron microscopy, X-ray CT, and rheometers. Though still minor at present, our research environment has been developed to a considerable extent, and we have a high likelihood of becoming a strong university. We look forward to working with you. There is still plenty of room for improvement in our classes, so we truly value your input. Let's train our professors and make KUAS an even better university.
Areas of Research
Biomimetic Robot, Self-healing & Repairing System, Soft Sensor & Actuator, Artificial Circulatory System, Dry Adhesion
  • Profile
  • Shunsuke Nagahama became an assistant professor at Kyoto University of Advanced Science in 2021. Prior to that, he was an assistant researcher in the Department of Modern Mechanical Engineering of Waseda University from 2015 to 2017, and an assistant professor in their School of Creative Science and Engineering from 2017 to 2019. Before that, he acted as a junior researcher (assistant professor) at the Waseda Research Institute for Science and Engineering of Waseda University from 2019 to 2021. He received his BE in 2011 and his ME in 2013 from Hokkaido University, and his Ph.D. of Mechanical Engineering from Waseda University in 2017.

    Dr. Nagahama’s current scientific activities focus on biospired mechanisms in machine systems. In particular, he is researching the blood circulatory system, self-healing and self-maintenance systems and other specific functions in living things. He studied catalysts in the institute of catalysis of Hokkado University, thus his ideas are based on surface and chemical science.
