- About me
Hideya Nakamura was born in 1980 in Okinawa, Japan.
He received his Ph.D. in 2008 under super vision of Prof. Satoru Watano from Department of Chemical Engineering, Osaka Prefecture University. Title of the Ph.D. thesis is "Fundamental Particle Fluidization Mechanism in High Centrifugal Force Field".
He then moved to United States, and was working as a Post doc associate at Prof. Brij Moudgil's group in Particle Engineering Research Center (PERC), University of Florida (2008 to 2010). He was working on computer simulations of an interaction between carbon nanomaterials and model cell membrane.
He then moved to Department of Chemical Engineering, Osaka Prefecture University, and started his carrier as a faculty in 2010.
He is currently working as an associate professor in Department of Chemical Engineering, Osaka Prefecture University.
He is working on advanced computational modeling of powder handling processes. He is also working on computer simulations of nanoparticle-cell interactions to understand how does the nanoparticles physicochemically interact with lipid bilayers.
