 Operations Research（OR）
 It is a scientific technique that builds mathematical models and finds their solutions by using computers for solving real problems. In particular, we focus on modeling as a mathematical optimization problem and developing algorithms to solve the problem. The scope of application of OR is diverse and we are conducting research to solve realworld problems in the fields of structure design, energy system, financial engineering, machine learning.
 Efficient algorithms for continuous optimization and thier applications to realworld problems
 Problems in real world often result in large scale, nonlinear, nonconvex continuous optimization problem. Also, in a situation where robustness against uncertainty (variation) of data is required, a model called a robust optimization problem may be useful. We aim to efficiently solve such optimization problems and contribute to real world problem solving.
