Curriculum Vitae of Lectures Prof. Dr. Isao Murata Professor of Osaka University, Head of Division of Sustainable Energy and Environmental Engineering, Director of United Neutron Ltd. Professor Murata worked for former JAERI from 1988-1994 as a researcher to develop Japanese High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR). In the beginning of 1995 he moved to Osaka University. Since then, he was engaged in fusion neutronics studies on such as neutron cross section measurements, shielding experiments and so on and Monte Carlo transport theory of neutral particles. From 2001 to 2003, as a guest scientist he worked for Research Center Juelich (FZJ), Germany, to develop European Spallation Source (ESS). From 2004 he began to conduct BNCT studies with medical doctors to develop various radiation devices for BNCT and to establish an ABNS (accelerator based neutron source) based BNCT in Japan.
Prof. Dr. Hiroshi Sagara Associate Professor, Doctor of Engineering,
Professor Sagara is involved in the research fields of nuclear reactor physics, advanced nuclear energy systems for transmutation of radioactive nuclear waste, and robust nuclear energy system designs against threats to safety, security and safeguards/non-proliferation. He has carriers at Tokyo Institute of Technology as well as at research institutes of Idaho National Laboratory. U.S.A., and Japan Atomic Energy Agency. He received Best Article Award, the 47th Atomic Energy Society of Japan Awards, 2015.
Prof. Youichi Enokida, Dr. Eng.
Professor at Department of Applied Energy, Graduate School of Engineering, Nagoya University Director of Management Facility for Nuclear Materials, Nagoya University
Professor Enokida has stayed and worked for education and academic researchers at the department of Nuclear Engineering in The University of Tokyo, Japan, Fuel Recycle Division in Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA, The department of Chemistry in the University of Idaho, USA. He expertizes ‘Nuclear Chemical Engineering,’ from isotope separation to nuclear waste management as well as process systems engineering for nuclear fuel cycle. He is currently working as a member of Nuclear Fuel Safety Examination Committee in Nuclear regulation Authority, Japan.
