received his B.S.(2000), M.S. (2002), and Ph.D. (2005) in Applied Chemistry from Waseda University (Tokyo, Japan) for his work on nano/micro fabrication for MEMS using electrochemical processes including electrodeposition, electroless deposition, electrochemical etching. Dr. Sato was a research associate in Waseda University from 2004 to 2006. Dr. Sato's current research interests include micro bio-interface as well. He joined Professor Michel M. Maharbiz group to work on Hybrid Insect MEMS project in 2007 and has been developing cyborg beetle which demonstrated the world's first remote radio control of insect flight.
The research was elected by MIT Tech Review and Time Magazine as one of the top researches in 2009. The article recently published in Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience is the most viewed to date since the journal was established.
