Yasuo Koizumi is a Professor at the Department of Functional Machinery and Mechanics at Shinshu University. He received his PhD degree from the University of Tokyo in 1977. He started his research career at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute in 1977 as a research engineer for nuclear reactor safety. He then worked at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory from 1981 through 1983 and later moved to the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Kogakuin University in 1989. He has been in his present position from 2008. His research is focused in the areas of pool and flow boiling, critical heat flux, condensation and two-phase flow. He is also interested in heat transfer and fluid flow in micro scale. Since his research field is closely related to energy systems, he has great interest in thermal and nuclear power station and energy supply.
