Research Themes

How shall we design creative products?

Originally, I started my research in the field of Robotics. Then expand my interest to including emotional engineering. I do my research in an interdisciplinary field that spans engineering design, computer science, and emotional engineering. I am particularly interested in understanding how to expand new design ideas and support this expansion of the design ideas using computers.

Teaching Philosophy

I hope that students can get applicable skills as well knowledge. Students should curious about any field to extend the possibility of their future.
