Short Bio

I am a PhD student in Graduate School of Systems and Information Engineering at University of Tsukuba, Japan. I work in the Entertainment Computing Laboratory, under the supervision of Dr. Junichi Hoshino. I received my Master's degree in Engineering from University of Tsukuba in 2014. My main research interests are computer animation, artificial life, virtual reality, and entertainment technologies. My current work focuses on the modeling of autonomous characters based on biological and neuroscientific perspectives.
