Career summary of Professor Shigeaki Ogibayashi

He graduated department of physics Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan, in 1969, and finished master degree majoring in physics in 1971.
In 1971, he started his career working in the R & D department of Nippon Steel Corporation as a research engineer in the field of metallurgy in steelmaking and solidification. He typically devoted to the development of quality-related technologies in continuous casting of steel slabs and blooms and contributed to increasing the continuous-casting ratio in most of the steelworks in Japan from 5% in 1971 to 100%.

He received his doctorate in engineering from Tokyo University in 1992 for his piles of work on the formation mechanism of centerline segregation of continuous casting and the invention and development of soft reduction technology to overcome the problem.

In 1997, He retired Nippon Steel and started his new career at Chiba Institute of Technology as a professor in the department of management information science. In the first several years since starting activities in Chiba Institute of Technology, he was mainly engaged in administration field, organizing a new faculty of social systems science, a new course of graduate school, etc. Since then, he started to focus on research activities in the field of modeling and simulation, especially in the agent-based modeling (ABM) of social systems. He is currently working on ABM of macroeconomic systems with the special interests on the condition for the validity of ABM and the effect of public policies of the government on the nation’s gross domestic product.(GDP).
