I am a 1st year PhD student at the University of Tokyo, under the supervision of Takeo Igarashi. My research centers around interactive experiences, virtual and augmented reality.
I received my MSc in Creative Informatics working with Takeo Igarashi and BEng in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tokyo working with Koji Yatani.
