Self introduction

Dr. Mikio Sakai is currently Full Professor at the Department of Nuclear Engineering & Management in The University of Tokyo. He earned his Ph.D. degree from The University of Tokyo in 2006. Then, he became Assistant Professor in 2007, Associate Professor in 2008, and Full Professor in 2023 at The University of Tokyo. In addition, he has become Visiting Professor at Imperial College London since 2023 and Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey since 2019. He extensively studies modeling and simulation for granular and multi-phase flows, parallel computation techniques for the discrete element method, and data science for powder systems. He is a world-leading professor in computational granular dynamics and has delivered many invited lectures at conferences. Besides, he has received some scientific awards, including The SCEJ Award for Outstanding Research Achievement presented by The Society of Chemical Engineers, Japan, the IP Award presented by the Information Center of Particle Technology, the Best Paper Award presented by the Society of Powder Technology of Japan and JACM Fellows Award presented by Japan Association for Computational Mechanics. He holds important posts in the powder technology community, including Director of the Society of Powder Technology of Japan, as well as Head of the Modeling & Simulation Division and Chairperson of the AI Technical Committee in the Association of Powder Process Industry and Engineering, JAPAN. Currently, he is the Editor of Chemical Engineering Science and Granular Matter.
