Dr. Nakajima received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Tokyo in 2007. After his Ph.D., he spent five years as an Assistant Professor at the University of Tokyo (2007-2012) before working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Maryland (2012-2016). He joined UCF in 2016 where he is currently an Assistant Professor.
Dr. Nakajima’s research focuses on design, crystal growth, and characterization of novel quantum materials, including topological semimetals/insulators, unconventional superconductors, and quantum critical metals. In particular, his expertise lies in characterization by utilizing charge/thermal transport and thermodynamic measurements in millikelvin temperature range.
