Dr. Goro Miyamoto is an associate professor at Institute for Materials Research (IMR), Tohoku University, Japan. He received B.E, M.S., Ph.D from the department of materials science and engineering, Kyoto University, Japan, in 2001, 2003, and 2006, respectively, and started his academic career at IMR in 2006. He was also a visiting researcher in the department of materials science and engineering, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands during 2013-2014.
His research interests include various aspects of fundamentals of microstructure evolution and its control in structural metallic materials, especially steels; transformation kinetics associated with element partitioning in diffusional transformation, crystallographic analysis of displacive transformation, and strengthening by nano-clustering/precipitation. He has also developed novel characterization methods, and his reconstruction software is widely used in Japanese steel industries. He has authored / co-authored over 160 refereed papers was awarded the Best paper awards by the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan (ISIJ) in 2008, 2014, and 2017, by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), UK in 2005, 2016, and 2022, the Young Researcher Awards by the Japan Institute of Metals and Materials (JIM) in 2009, by ISIJ in 2011, by Honda memorial foundation in 2016, the Murakami Young Researcher Award by JIM in 2016, the Meritorious Award by JIM in 2018, the Nishiyama Commemorative Prize by ISIJ in 2018.
