  • Person of the Week

    Masato Taki

    Hello, I am Masato Taki. This May, I joined the iTHES group. I received my PhD from Tokyo university in 2009, and then I moved to YITP in Kyoto as a postdoc researcher. In 2012, I came to RIKEN as a special postdoctoral researcher, and I have moved to this iTHES group in this month. My main research fields are superstring theory and gauge theory. In the past several years, I have been interested especially in applications of the localization method that sometimes enables us to calculate analytically and exactly the path integral of quantum field theories. In addition, I have also started working on theoretical study of invisibility cloaking devices, which become a real possibility because of many developments in fabrication of metamaterials. I hope to expand this research direction through discussions with the iTHES members.
