Postdoctoral Fellow at UChicago, USA

Pronouns: he/him/his

I am joining in Human-Computer Integration lab led by Pedro Lopes as a postdoc as of June 2022.

I received my Ph.D. in Engineering at The University of Electro-Communications (the department of informatics), UEC, Japan, in 2022. My supervisor was prof. Hiroyuki Kajimoto, who leads Kajimoto-lab.

I focus on haptic interfaces that modulate human haptic sensation, including touch and proprioception, by applying mechanical / electrical / electromagnetic stimulation to the skin / muscle / tendon.

My work is supported by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science Research Fellowship.
