WU Raymond Cheng Yi
Raymond started his first job with a steelmaking company collaborated with ThyssenKrupp AG (Germany).
He then studied Information Technology, and worked in IT for 30+ years with IBM, Oracle, and governments of Japan, US, Germany, and Canada specialized in IT architecture, Database, Cloud, AI/Machine Learning, and HPC (high performance computing).
Based on the principles of first principles, we enjoy discovering unexpected physical phenomena,
I enjoy discovering unexpected physical phenomena.
Research Themes：”Molecular dynamics simulation of a-Si : H/O/c-Si interface using machine learning force field”
Interests：Soccer, Competitive karuta (Hyakunin Isshu). I am able to have a good balance of research and study because I can have a good amount of time for myself on weekday evenings and weekends.
The beauty of this laboratory is that you can learn machine learning and statistics as an additional specialization to the materials engineering you learned as an undergraduate.
Research Themes：”Prediction of Physical Properties of Dielectric Materials by First-Principles Calculation and Machine Learning”
Research Themes：”Ammonia synthesis catalyst search (machine learning)”
Interests：Games, Pokemon cards, etc.
Special skill：Short distance running (100m)
Interests：Games, Watch baseball games
Favorite：ONE PIECE、Ukyo Shutou、Chae-won
I will enjoy my studies and do my best!
I will do my best in research with a smile and responsiveness!
March 2023 Graduation from Master’s Program
