University of Pennsylvania

I am a postdoctoral research fellow working at the Section of Biomedical Image Analysis (SBIA), University of Pennsylvania. My research focuses on designing new machine learning and large-scale optimization algorithms, particularly for studying patterns in large and complicated biomedical datasets. For additional information about my research, please visit my research page and Github page.

Prior to joining Penn, I worked as a Graduate Research Assistant in the EECS department at the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, where I received my PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. During my time at Michigan, I conducted machine learning research under the supervision of Professor Clayton Scott and Professor Chandra Sripada. I successfully defended my PhD on December, 2014.

Presentation on Machine Learning (Japanese・日本語)

I recently had the pleasure of giving a talk to the Philadelphia Japanese Research Community at the University of Pennsylvania about Machine Learning.
