Curriculum Vitae

Kenzo Miya, born June 13, 1940 in Nagasaki, is a scientist and expert in the fields of electromagnetic field calculation, nuclear fusion technology and high-temperature superconductor technology. He graduated in 1964 from the Technical Faculty of the University of Tokyo, received a master’s degree in the Department of Nuclear Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1966 and a Doctorate in the same department in 1969. He worked at the Nippon Steel Corporation Research Institute (1969-1972). Since 1972, he has been an associate, and since 1982 he has been a full professor at the Faculty of Engineering in Tokyo.

In addition to universities in Japan (Osaka, Nagoja, Hokkaido) he taught at universities in the USA (Maryland University, Cornell, Tennesse University), at the universities of Budapest and Bucharest and was a professor counselor at X’s ́ian Jiatong University in China.

He is the author of over 300 scientific papers and four books, participated as an editor or member in the editing of journals: International Journal for Applied Electromagnetism and Mechanics, International Journal for Numerical Modeling. He is a member of numerous societies, Japanese and international, has won two awards for best book, an award for presiding over ISEM meetings and a Volta Gold Medal of the University of Pavia.

He led a number of important projects in the field of bound electromagnetic and mechanical problems such as electromagnetic-mechanical interactions of thin-shell structures, magnetoelastic instability of superconducting magnets, magnetic strength and levitation in magnetic fields. In the fields of applied electromagnetism, he dealt with numerical calculations of static and dynamic magnetic fields and non destructive investigation of eddy current.

He has been collaborating with Croatian scientists for many years.

He was elected as a corresponding member of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in 2000.
