  • I am an assistant professor at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. I received my Ph.D. at Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST). I received my B.S. degree in science from Kanazawa University in 2009, and my M.S. in knowledge science from JAIST in 2011. My current research interests include computational design/fabrication and human visual perception, especially in layout/arrangement for discrete elements.

News
