In December, Associate Professor Daisuke Tanaka, of the School of Science and Technology, was selected by the National Institute of Science and Technology Policy (NISTEP) of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) as a "Researcher with a Nice Step," given to researchers who are active in various fields of science and technology innovation and who bring energy to Japan. The selection process for this initiative began in 2005, and Professors Shinya Yamanaka and Hiroshi Amano, who were later awarded the Nobel Prize, are among the past recipients of the "Nice Step" award.

 The subject of Prof. Tanaka’s research is the exploration of innovative energy storage and conversion materials by integrating high-throughput synthesis and evaluation systems with machine learning. He is conducting research to develop innovative materials by freely manipulating molecules using state-of-the-art nanotechnology methods. Currently, he is focusing on Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs), which are self-assembled from metal ions and bridging ligands.
