Hidehiro UEKUSA − Editorial Board Member

Hidehiro UEKUSA, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Materials Science at Tokyo Institute of Technology, was born in 1964 in Tokyo. He received B. of Science (1987), M. of Science (1989), and D. of Science (1992) degrees from Keio University. In 1992, he joined the Department of Chemistry at Tokyo Institute of Technology as a Research Associate (1992 -1999). He was appointed to Associate Professor of the Department of Chemistry and Materials Science in 1999. His major field is chemical crystallography. His current interests include 1) analysis of crystalline state reactions, 2) development of rapid X-ray diffraction measurement methods, and 3) crystal structure analysis from powder diffraction data. He stayed at the Department of Chemical Science at Birmingham University, UK in 2002 for collaborative work in these area. He is also Chairman of the Committee on Database and Information in the Crystallographic Society of Japan (2002 -2003) and a member of the Commission on Structural Chemistry in the International Union of Crystallography. He enjoys teatime every afternoon with his students.
