Hitoshi Okubo is presently Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Nagoya University and Chairman of University Committee of Power Academy in Japan.

His research subjects are specializing in the field of electric field calculation and measurement, electrical insulation techniques, new high voltage power equipment, the diagnostic techniques for electrical insulation performance in power equipment, related phenomena including gas/liquid/vacuum/solid discharges with environment-friendly materials, and FGM and nano-dielectrics, as well as the power applications of high temperature superconductivity (HTS).

He was a guest researcher in Washington State University (USA), National Research Council (Canada), University of Hanover (Germany), Strathclyde University (UK), Karolinska Institute (Sweden) in 1999.
He is a Japan regular member of CIGRE SC B3, C4 and D1, and the convenor of the WG D1.15 (New WG D1.38) on the material development and test procedures for HTS (High Temperature Superconducting) power applications.

He is a member of IEEE, IEE of Japan and VDE.

Dr. Hitoshi Okubo was elected the Deputy President in 2010 and appointed for the Presidency of IEE of Japan (IEEJ), for one year from May 2011.
