Dr. Takeshi Kato is a Professor of Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability at Nagoya University, Japan. He obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Engineering from Nagoya University in 1993 and 1995, respectively. He received Doctor of Engineering from Nagoya University in 1998. In 1998, he became an assistant professor of the Department of Electronics, Nagoya University, and in 2007 he was an associate professor of the Department of Quantum Engineering, Nagoya University. Since 2020, he is a professor of Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability, Nagoya University.
He is working on magnetic thin films for storage and sensor applications, such as bit-patterned media fabricated by ion irradiation, thermally assisted STT switching, SOT switching, and GMR sensor devices. He has also studied about magnetization dynamics of magnetic thin films for efficient STT and SOT switching. He serves as a vice-chair of IEEE Magnetics Society Nagoya Chapter. He has been a steering chair of the MORIS 2022 conference. Since 2021, he serves as a Director for Editorial of the Magnetics Society of Japan (MSJ) which is a sister society of IEEE Magnetic Society.
