I am a Professor at Nara Institute of Science and Technology, leading Cybernetics and Reality Engineering Laboratory (CARE Lab).
I received my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in information systems from Nara Institute of Science and Technology in 1996 and 1998, respectively. I was a Research Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science in 1998.
I worked for Communications Research Laboratory (current National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT)) from 1999 to 2002.
I was a visiting researcher at Human Interface Technology Laboratory of University of Washington from 2001 to 2002. I was an Associate Professor at Cybermedia Center, Osaka University from 2002 to 2017.
My research interests include virtual reality, augmented reality, human augmentation, 3D user interfaces, CSCW, and context awareness. I have been involved in organizing IEEE and ACM conferences, such as IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR), IEEE Virtual Reality, IEEE International Symposium on Wearable Computers (ISWC), IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces (3DUI), and ACM Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST).
