Masahiro Takenaga comes to Imperial from Japan, where he has worked for Canon as an engineer since he graduated from his undergraduate Chemistry degree.
Masahiro was particularly attracted to the MRes in Molecular Science and Engineering because it provides the opportunity to master both the theory and application of a variety of computational techniques, to help solve practical problems. He is also enjoying gaining a deeper understanding of molecular structure and behaviour, and how this can provide greater insight into fundamental science and applied engineering topics.
Upon completion of the MRes, Masahiro plans to return to his company in Japan, and use his training to develop novel products.
Fun fact: Masahiro loves to travel and explore new cities around the world.
