Research Themes

Development of bio-signal measurement and automatic diagnosis technology

In recent years, bio-signals are utilized in various situations. In addition, extending healthy life expectancy has become a major issue in Japan that is a super-aging society. Therefore, I aim to develop a system that can measure bio-signals without contact and diagnose health automatically. In bio-signal measurement, I especially focus on measuring cardiac signals using SQUIDs, capacitive electrodes and infrared device. In addition, as a feature extraction technique for automatic diagnosis, I focus on digital filters, statistical / probabilistic methods (independent component analysis, etc.).

Teaching Philosophy

I would like to develop human resource that can accturately grasp personal and social issues, and think and act on their own. Especially, I think that it is important to think and act on their own, and I do education that emphasizes autonomy.
