My Areas of Research

Development of underwater robots for the examination and management of marine and fishery resources

Advanced engineering brings together the examination and the management of marine and aquatic resources. It is not possible for humans to conduct examinations in the sea or underwater. In order to make the impossible possible, we are working to give them movement similar to that of marine and aquatic creatures, particularly through the research into and development of biomimetic robots that mimic the biological characteristics of motor functions. We are also tackling research and development into robot hands that can manipulate flexible objects such as marine products and items processed by fisheries.

My Teaching Philosophy

Make difficult things easy, easy things profound, profound things fun…that means research is fun!
I have played with the words of the playwright INOUE Hisashi to describe research, and I really do want research activities to be that way.
