Toshikazu Takeda

University of Fukui, Japan

Toshikazu Takeda is the Director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Engineering, University of Fukui, Fukui, Japan. He got a Doctorate in nuclear engineering from the Osaka University in 1973. From April 1973 to December 1977, he worked at the Hitachi Company as a Researcher. He did research on reactor physics of fast reactors and boiling water reactors. From January 1978 to October 1994 he worked at the Department of Nuclear Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Osaka University, Osaca, Japan, as an Associate Professor and from November 1994 to March 2009 as a Professor. Since April 2009, he has been serving at the University of Fukui. Takeda has studied reactor physics at the Osaka University and the University of Fukui. He was especially involved in developing the 3-dimensional deterministic transport calculation methods and the Monte-Carlo methods. He also proposed a new field of reactor physics called microreactor physics. In this new field, the detailed neutron spectrum and temperature distribution are considered in calculating whole-core neutronics characteristics. Now, he is making effort to build up international cooperation schemes between Japan, France, and USA in reactor Physics. Also, he is trying to develop the nuclear human resource of Asian countries.
