Yasuoka Laboratory

Research Introduction

Our lab specialises in the study of phenomena using state-of-the-art technologies in multiple fields, such as "Nanotechnology", "Environment", "Energy" and "Biosciences", from a microscopic perspective using Molecular Simulations, primarily Molecular Dynamics. Furthermore, to enhance the speed of Molecular Dynamics Simulations, lab members are also active in the development of special purpose hardware.
