ProfessorMy primarily area of focus is coding theory, which is known as the theory of error correction. As humans, we are skilled at estimating and restoring original information, even in the presence of mishearing or misspelling―essentially, error correction. My research involves mathematically describing the conditions under which error correction is possible and developing algorithms to correct errors.
Recent Topics of Interest:
I am interested in situations where information is shortened due to errors, with missing elements, yet I strive to restore the original data. This challenge has been a global problem tackled since the 1960s. Furthermore, I am developing methods to rectify missing information in scenarios involving planar arrangements, such as array-type designed codes, as well as in the context of future technologies like quantum computing and quantum communication.
Motto in Research or in Life:
I skip what I don't like and avoid putting in any extra effort.
Quibbles and poultices stick anywhere.
Hobby / Holiday:
I watch movies or TV dramas almost every day. I prefer to watch movies in a theater, especially those that leave a strong impact on my mind. As for TV dramas, I like suspense or horror from Nordic, Korean, or American productions. Alternatively, I play and sing songs I loved during my student days on the ukulele.
