ANDO Hideo
I was born in Kyoto, and received my bachelor, master, and doctor degrees in the group of Prof. Shigeyoshi Sakaki and Prof. Hirofumi Sato at Kyoto University. Then I worked in the University of California, Irvine as a postdoc in Prof. Shaul Mukamel group. I have been studying molecular mechanisms of excited-state phenomena from a viewpoint of theoretical physical chemistry and chemical physics.
