I completed my bachelor’s and master’s at The University of Tokyo. My research was experimental study into interaction between low dimensional semiconductor materials and photon. After graduation, I joined Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation and worked in R&D division for 7 years. I worked on variety of heat and energy related projects both experimentally and computationally. My goal here is to discover efficient material to reduce carbon dioxide using machine learning technique.

Outside of school, I enjoy snowboarding, hiking and reading books. I also like to travel and enjoy new foods, culture and scenery.
