Speaker Biography (Ichiro Amimori)
Ichiro Amimori received the Ph.D. degree in material science from Brown University in 2006. After the graduation of the University of Tokyo in 1994 (Master of Agriculture), he joined FUJIFILM Corporation and had been developing optical films for LCD and printing applications. He joined the University of Tokyo interfaculty Initiative in Information Studies in 2013 and then joined Someya lab in 2014. His research interests include functional materials, their applications, and the interaction between technology and society such as entrepreneurship, marketing, public understanding of science and so on. Dr. Amimori has received International Display Workshop 2008 Best Paper Award.

Someya lab in the University of Tokyo has been dealing with Organic Electronics since 2003. Organic devices have attractive features; such as its ease to be fabricated on plastic films, its thinness and flexibility, and its extraordinary durability from banging and bending.
Our recent research focus is bio-medical application of organic devices. We aim to develop novel electronic devices that can harmoniously interface with living bodies by taking advantage of the inherent softness of organic materials and the remarkable features of organic molecules. Our next challenge is to expand them into "wearable electronics" and its beyond.
