I am an associate professor (*) of  Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Informatics, Shizuoka Institute of Science and Technology (SIST), which is located in about 200km (120mi.) west of Tokyo. I am also a visiting researcher at AIRC, AIST, Japan, and an ACT-I researcher.

My research interests include natural language processing (NLP), especially in educational NLP using item response theory (IRT) and machine learning (ML).

Previously, I was a researcher at the Artificial Intelligence Research Center (AIRC), National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Tokyo, Japan. There, I studied natural language understanding.

Before that, I was a project assistant professor at Graduate School of System Design, Tokyo Metropolitan University, a researcher at National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, a postdoc at National Institute of Informatics (JSPS PD, in Prof. Miyao group), in reverse chronological order. I obtained my Ph.D. (Information Science and Technology) at the University of Tokyo, supervised by Prof. Hiroshi Nakagawa, in September 2013.

*: while my job title is a “koushi” in Japanese, SIST approves the use of “associate professor” as the English translation of the Japanese job title “koushi”.
