Our research experts

Dr. Katsuhiko Oshikawa

Catalyst systems specialist for diesel after-treatment and fuel cell technologies

“Look beyond the stereotypes and fancy words that have no deep insight. Technology is built on data, not oratory skills.”

Dr. Katsuhiko Oshikawa, Manager

As a manager and a researcher in the field of catalysis, I have expertise in methane reforming, diesel exhaust after-treatment, and fuel cell systems. Past experiences include work at Toyota and also at a subsidiary of former Degussa, along with a teaching position at the International Christian University. Presently leading an international team for fuel cell technology development and proliferation.
