Kazunari Matsuda received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in applied physics from the Nagoya University in 1993 and 1995, respectively, and completed his Ph.D. in applied physics from Nagoya in 1998. He was a postdoctoral research associate in Kanagawa Academy of Science and Technology, in 1998-2004 and also appointed the PRESTO in JST in 2002-2004. He joined the Institute of Chemical Research of Kyoto University in 2004 as an Associate Professor in 2005 and promoted to Professor in 2010. He is currently a Professor in the Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University. Professor Matsuda was a recipient of the Young Scientist Award, Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan in 2004 and Young Scientist Award, The Physical Society of Japan, in 2007.

Professor Matsuda’s main research interests are the novel optical phenomena emerging in nano-materials, especially in nano-carbon (carbon nanotubes, and graphene) and atomically thin layered system by advanced laser spectroscopy. He has published about 100 scientific journals, and 100 invited talk in conferences.
