Research theme

Brainlike energyefficient information processing
For realizing nextgeneration information processing systems, it is indispensable to miniaturize devices and make structures compact for enhancement of energy efficiency. We aim to develop mathematical methodologies for making brainlike computing systems energy efficient such that efficient computing is realized with low power and high speed. 
Applications of machine learning and advanced mathematical methods
Machine learning technologies have enabled to efficiently perform tasks that have been manually handled by people. We aim to mathematically formulate problems in fields that are not approached by machine learning and mathematical modeling, and solve the problems by combining appropriate machine learning methods and advanced mathematical techniques. 
Mathematical studies on medical and social systems
It is becoming possible to obtain real data on medical and social systems due to the developments of sensor devices and measurement techniques. We aim to propose effective control strategies for solving medically and socially important problems and improving quality of life. 
Network robustness
Networked systems are ubiquitous in the world, such as the Internet, power networks, and biological networks. Networking often accompanies a risk that a partial failure causes a breakdown of the whole system. We are investigating how network robustness depends on network structure, dynamics, and element interactions. Our aim is to develop a design method of robust networks and a recovery method of damaged networks.
