Prof. Abukhdeir was awarded a Invitation Fellowship by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). From mid-June through July of this year he has worked with Dr. Jun-ichi Fukuda at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tsukuba, Japan's "Science City." Dr. Fukuda is one of the group leaders of the Soft Matter Modeling group within AIST's Nanosystem Research Institute. Their current collaboration is involves nanoscale modeling of the structure of "frustrated" liquid crystal phases.
During the fellowship Prof. Abukhdeir was also able to visit many leading Japanese researchers at other institutions in Japan including University of Tokyo, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Waseda University, Nagaoka University of Technology, and Kyoto University.
