Plenary Speakers

(in alphabetic order)
Tadashi INOUE
Osaka University, Japan

*Title (Tentative):
Recent Progress of Rheo-optical Studies on Viscoelastic Properties of Polymeric Systems
* Tadashi INOUE
(Osaka University, Japan)

Tadashi INOUE is a professor in the Department of Macromolecular Science, Graduate School of Science at Osaka University. After getting Ph.D in Kyoto University in 1988, he did postdoctoral work on molecular dynamics of block copolymer solution with T. Hashimoto at Kyoto University (1988-1989). He worked as an assistant professor (1989-2000) for K. Osaki and as an associate professor (2000-2006) for H. Watanabe, at Institute for Chemical Research, Kyoto University. In 2007, he was promoted as a full professor in Osaka University.
He has extensive experience in rheo-optics, particularly dynamic birefringence, in addition to conventional rheological measurements. His unique technique using simultaneous measurements of stress and birefringence has been utilized for various topics, including viscoelastic properties of polymers around the glass transition zone, molecular dynamics of bottlebrush like poly(macromonomers), rheology of microphase-separated block copolymer solutions, and nanosilica filled rubber.
Ravi JAGADEESHAN
Monash University, Australia

*Title (Tentative):
The Dynamics of Polymer Solutions at Finite Concentrations
* Ravi JAGADEESHAN
(Monash University, Australia)

Takashi KATO is a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University. Prior to his appointment at Monash in 2001, Professor Jagadeeshan was at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras as an Associate Professor. After the completion of his PhD in 1989 on the mechanics of granular materials at the Indian Institute of Science, he did postdoctoral work on polymer solution rheology with R. A. Mashelkar at the National Chemical Laboratory in India (1990-1991), on sand pile dynamics with Professor S. F. Edwards at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge (1991-1993), and on polymer solution rheology with Professor H. C. Öttinger at ETH Zürich (1993-1994). He received an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship in 1999, which he took up at the Techno-Mathematik Department at the University of Kaiserlautern. He served as the President of the Australian Society of Rheology between 2006 and 2008. He is currently the Australian representative on the International Committee on Rheology, and the Editor-in- Chief of the Korea-Australia Rheology Journal.
