I am a Professor at Laboratory of Enzymology in Department of Biotechnology, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo located in Tokyo, Japan. Raised in Kure, Hiroshima, Japan. I obtained Ph.D degree in Department of Biotechnology, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, The University of Tokyo in 1999. My research interests concern structure and function of enzymes, mainly those of Carbohydrate-Active enZymes. My home page is here. I contributed to three-dimensional structure determination of
