Tomohiro Taniguchi is a CNST Visiting Researcher in the Electron Physics Group and a Staff Scientist at the Spintronics Research Center in the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan. He received a B.S. in Electronic Engineering from Tohoku University, Japan and a Ph.D. in Engineering from University of Tsukuba, Japan. His doctoral research focused on developing theoretical models to explain the behavior of transverse spin current in ferromagnetic metals. At AIST, he focuses on adapting the Fokker-Planck theory to explain spin torque switching rates in the thermally activated regions of ferromagnetic nanostructures and on theoretically studying the oscillation behavior of spin torque oscillators. Tomohiro is working with Mark Stiles on developing theories of spin transfer torques and their applications.
