Our researches will be focused to create novel functional soft materials such as stimuli-responsive hydrogels and polymers. Stimuli-responsive hydrogels are able to generate mechanical energy by deforming their shape arising from chemical changes of composing polymers in response to stimuli.
To develop more intelligent and sophisticated man-made actuators with high efficiency, it will be important to understand the fundamental operating system and structural engineering abundant in natural and biological systems.
