Research TopicsMathematical Analysis of Complex SystemsIn order to comprehend diverse complex systems ranging over biology, brain science, and socioeconomics, we are developing new mathematical techniques based on, e.g., bifurcation theory, timeseries analysis, and statistics, and trying to construct universal theoretical frameworks for complex systems. Understanding Information processing of biological systems In order to unveil the design principle of biological systems and their information processing, we are working on theoretical biology and bioinformatics for different types of biological phenomena and data, which cover neuroscience, cell biology, developmental biology, immunology, physiology, epidemics, bioimaging, and nextgeneration sequencing. Additionally, we are employing our mathematical models of brain and neural networks for engineering new neuromorphic hardware. Chaos engineering We are developing new information processing systems taking full advantage of the diverse dynamical behaviors that chaos and complex systems generate. Those systems are applied to the implementation of nonlinear analog circuits, constructing an artificial brain, and other engineering problems.
