(Computational materials scientist working for Elements Strategy Initiative for Structural Materials (ESISM) in Kyoto University)

My job is to explore actually useful materials by computer simulation. Phonon calculation is the main tool to investigate materials and for which I develop scientific software.

- phonopy: Phonon calculator and analyzer written in Python
- phono3py: Phonon-phonon interaction and lattice theraml conductivity calculator written in Python
- spglib: Crsytal symmetry finder written in C
- kspclib: Collection of functions for crystal reciprocal space in C
- niggli: Determination of Niggli cell written in C
