CURRENT RESEARCH INTEREST:
My current interest is controlling exoskeletons and robots which interacts with human (physical human-robot interaction, pHRI). It is important to develop exoskeletons which must be controlled "accurately" for users though there are uncertainties in environments (e.g. time varying human model). My interests also include hardware design such that passive exoskeletons and/or actuators to achieve the controller(e.g. SEA).

RESEARCH INTEREST (During MS & BS in Waseda):
As I would like to familiarize the robotic technologies, I am interested in the technologies that provide early diagnosis/rehabilitation with low-cost devices or with devices using in daily lives (like a smart phone).
Other research interests are developing technologies that enable users to enhance their quality of life (QOL) by bringing out the unconscious behavior of human with simple and lightweight devices.
ABSTRACT of MASTER THESIS:
At Waseda university, there was a research project tried to develop robotic upper limb orthosis with tremor suppressibility and elbow joint movability, collaborating with a company. For a step toward the practical use of the orthosis, I have been in charge of the development of diagnosis system.
(I made a short movie for this system, so please let me know if you want to watch it!)
I have developed a diagnostic system to detect joints with essential tremor using an accelerometer and posture information. Currently, I used motion capture system to obtain the patient's posture. However, with my system & image recognition systems which can estimate patients' upper limb posture with a camera, it will be able for doctors to diagnose patients just using a smart phone.
