Testuya Hama was born on October 6, 1984 in Osaka. He received his B.Eng. (2007), M.Eng. (2009), and Ph.D. (2010) in engineering from Kyoto University (Japan) for his study of the photodissociation dynamics of water ice. He joined the Institute of Low Temperature Science (ILTS) at Hokkaido University as an Assistant Professor in 2010. In 2020, he joined the Komaba Institute for Science (KIS) as an associate professor. His research focuses on surface chemistry and photochemistry relevant to atmospheric chemistry and astrochemistry, with an emphasis on amorphous solid water, nuclear-spin conversion, and quantum tunneling.
