  • 2019.04 Great thanks to FUNAI Foundation, received FUNAI Research Award for Young Scientists.
  • 2019.03 Our work has been reported by The Daily Industrial News, Tokyo TV, NICONICO News, etc.
  • 2019.03 Our work has been presented in ITE-ME2019, INTERACTION2019 and Augmented Human 2019.


    I am Assistant Professor at Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) . Before Joining JAIST, I was a project Assistant Professor and Postdoc Researcher (PD) in User Interface Research Group working with Prof. Takeo Igarashi in the University of Tokyo. I was a Research Fellow of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) from 2014 to 2016. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Graphics under the supervision of Prof. Kazunori Miyata. My research interests are mainly in Computer Graphics, HCI, and Digital Fabrication. Especially, the usage of Data-Driven Approaches in creativity support. My Ph.D. work has proposed data-driven approaches for complex flow dynamics.
