Faculty of Engineering / Center for Aerial Intelligent Vehicles, Chiba University
Associate ProfessorWith engineering tools such as computational simulations and robotics, I am investigating how flying animals such as insects and birds utilize air to achieve their goals, including efficient long-distance flight, stable flight in disturbance, efficient localization of food and mates, and others. Based on the knowledge and insights gained from these studies, I am also trying to develop bio-inspired robots.
Recent Topics of Interests:
Insect and bird flight without flapping
Olfactory and auditory navigation in insects
Motto in Research or in Life:
A rolling stone gathers no moss
Hobby / Holiday:
I engage in programming for my research or go outside with my camera to take pictures of birds and insects (thanks MICRO FOURTHIRDS for the compactness!). Taking pictures is enjoyable as it lets me appreciate the beauty of nature more clearly than seeing with my poor eyesight. Additionally, I have a keen interest in watching foreign dramas and shogi (Japanese chess) matches.
Faculty of Science, Chiba University
Associate ProfessorNo two individuals share the exact same facial features, and similarly, no two individuals possess identical patterns of thought. This diversity and individual variations also exist in organisms other than humans.
My research focuses on understanding the process by which these individual differences are shaped during the evolutionary time scale. Additionally, I aim to explore the functional significance of individual variations within groups of organisms.
Recent Topics of Interest: I have keen interests not only in elucidating the functions of diversity from a biological point of view, but also in applying the “power” of diversity to the fields of industry, agriculture, and engineering.
Motto in Research or in Life: Cherishing my “unique perspective on things,” firmly believing in it, and confronting various events and phenomena. Additionally, embracing a balanced sense of self-doubt.
Hobby / Holiday: Spending time with my children
