Dr. Takeshi Kobayashi
Development and application of new techniques, theory and instrumentation in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Experimental and theoretical studies of new materials, especially catalysts, with emphasis on electronic properties of surfaces, as well as structure and dynamics of molecules in interaction with surfaces and interfaces.
