Hiroshi Kishi was born in 1955, Shizuoka-prefecture, Japan. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics from Tokyo University of Science in 1978 and 1980, respectively. He joined Taiyo Yuden Co., Ltd., Materials Research and Development division in 1980. He was responsible for the development of dielectric, piezoelectric, and magnetic materials. Of particular note are Dr. Kishi’s significant, long-term achievements in Ni-based MLCCs, particularly the design of core-shell microstructure and understanding the importance of site occupancy of the lanthanide cations. His work has influenced the commercialization of MLCCs and had a profound impact on our understanding of the scientific aspects of BaTiO3. He has helped to build good relationships between scientists in US and Japanese industry through efforts such as the US-Japan Workshop on Dielectric and Piezoelectric Ceramics. He obtained a Doctor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Nagoya Institute of Technology in 2002 through work on dielectric material development for multilayer ceramic capacitors. He became an operating officer of the R&D center there at 2013, and currently, he is working as Technical Advisor of the R&D center. He was awarded the Richard M. Fulrath Award from the American Ceramic Society in 1998, and also was awarded the Ceramic Society of Japan Award and Japan Society of Powder and Powder Metallurgy award in 2008. He was awarded the title of Fellow of the Ceramic Society of Japan in 2016.
