|Affiliation||Department of Nuclear Safety Engineering|
|Profile||Dr. Naoyuki Takaki has served as a professor of the nuclear safety engineering department at Tokyo City University since 2012. His major specialty includes nuclear reactor physics, advanced reactor design and nuclear transmutation.
After graduating from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1992, he had charged with developing commercial fast breeder reactor for 16 years at Nuclear R&D Center and head office of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). He had worked as a professor for 4 years at Tokai University, where he contributed to restore the department of nuclear engineering before arriving at current post.
Along with over 75 open literature scientific articles, he has published three translated books of AMERICA THE POWERLESS: Facing Our Nuclear Energy Dilemma (1999), RADIATION AND MODERN LIFE: Fulfilling Marie Curie’s Dream (2006), and FAST SPECTRUM REACTORS (2016). Dr. Takaki currently serves as a chairperson of specialists committee on “Thorium nuclear energy system” in Atomic Energy Society of Japan.
