He was before working as a postdoctoral researcher at Tohoku University, and successfully fabricated a perfectly ordered epitaxial full-Heusler alloy films, which was the first report to their knowledge and was acknowledged by several awards. He also worked as a postdoctoral associate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he demonstrated basic function of a phase-change memory, which has been recently released in a market by Intel. He received his PhD in Physics at the University of Cambridge in 2001 and then served as a research associate at the Cavendish Laboratory in order to complete his study on spin detection of optically pumped spin-polarised electrons in a semiconductor with using a ferromagnetic overlayers, which attracted great interest, resulting a few invited talks and papers. He was originally graduated from Keio University for his BSc and MSc studies in Physics.
