Sadao Ota(太田禎生)


幅ひろい工学・物理を融合して生命科学・医療を変える研究を模索中。光、流体、機械(Nano/MEMS)、バイオ、ソフトマター・生物物理、画像情報処理のミックス。2008年東大修士中退、2013年UC Berkeley機械工学博士取得、2014年東大化学専攻助教に着任、2015年に同職を辞して現在さきがけ専任研究員。2016年にThinkcyte Inc.創業。2018年より、東大先端研准教授。

I am an interdisciplinary scientist, simultaneously optical/bio/mech/electrical engineer and applied/biophysicist, playing around at interfaces of applied physics and life science/medicine. I’m interested to develop and apply innovative biomedical platforms for enabling systematic biological and medical research. I like science, traveling, art, media, and creative business. If you are into any of these, I would love to chat.
