Nobuhiro Tsuji received the B.S. degree (1989), an M.S. degree (1991), and a Ph.D. degree (1994) all from the Department of Materials Science and Technology, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan. After obtaining his Ph.D. degree, he joined Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, in 1994, and since 2000 he has been an Associate Professor at the Department of Adaptive Machine Systems, Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University. He also worked as a Visiting Scholar at Metallurgy & Materials Engineering Department of Colorado School of Mines, USA, in 1998-1999. In March 2009, he moved from Osaka University to Kyoto University and has worked as a Professor at the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, Kyoto University, Japan. He has been studying physical metallurgy and mechanical metallurgy of structural metallic materials involving both steels and nonferrous alloys. His research works cover metal working processes, heat treatments, recrystallization, phase transformation, metallography, microstructures, textures, crystallography, electron microscopy, dislocation theory, and mechanical properties of metallic materials. Especially, he has developed accumulative roll bonding (ARB) process, which is a kind of severe plastic deformation process using rolling deformation, and has energetically studied the ultrafine grained and nanostructured metals fabricated by ARB and other processes. Tsuji has published a number of papers in various international journals, and the papers on the correlation between microstructures and mechanical properties of nanostructured materials have been highly cited. He has also joined the Editorial Board of Steel Research International journal since 2007. He got many scientific awards including the 5th JSPS Prize.
