And in 2018, he was a Postdoctoral research associate in Prof. Sandro Sorella's lab. at International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), Italy. Currently, he is an Asst. Prof in JAIST and a visiting researcher in SISSA (supported by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science). His research interests focus on quantum Monte Carlo, density functional theory, and materials informatics.

He has been involved in various research projects, including experimental (inorganic chemistry and condensed matter physics) and computational (Density functional theory and Quantum Monte Carlo) ones, both in academia and industry.

His experimental and computational works have been published as about 40 papers in various international journals, and his research activity is recognized internationally with an h-factor of 14 and about 700 citations (source Google Scholar).

He is one of the leading developers of TurboRVB, the QMC code of Sandro Sorella's group. Since 2016, he has been working with Sandro Sorella and has experience with coding in the TurboRVB software. He recently launched a new python package, Turbo-Genius, which realizes user-friendliness and high-throughput calculations of TurboRVB.
