 Meet the Editor

Takashi Uemura obtained his PhD at Department of Polymer Chemistry, Kyoto University in 2002. He then began his academic career as Assistant Professor and Associate Professor at Department of Synthetic Chemistry and Biological Chemistry in Kyoto University. In 2018, he moved to the University of Tokyo where he holds the position of Professor. He was also a researcher of PRESTO program (2006–2010) and has been a research director for a CREST program (2013-2020) of the Japan Science and Technology Agency. He has received a number of awards, including the Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) Award for Young Chemists, the Commendation for Science and Technology by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology, Kao Research Initiative Award, and JSPS Prize.

His research focuses on the preparation of synergistic nanohybrids between porous coordination compounds and polymeric materials, in particular, polymer chemistry in confined nanospaces.
