Vita
I received my Ph.D in 01/2016 from Kyoto University, Japan, supervised by Marco Cuturi and Akihiro Yamamoto. Then, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Nagoya Institute of Technology & National Institute for Materials Science, Japan, mentored by Ichiro Takeuchi between 02/2016 and 08/2017. After that, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher between 09/2017 and 07/2021, and as a research scientist between 08/2021 and 08/2022 at RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project (RIKEN AIP), mentored by Makoto Yamada. From 09/2022, I have been working as an assistant professor at The Institute of Statistical Mathematics (ISM), and I have concurrently been a visiting scientist at RIKEN AIP, working in Functional Analytic Learning Team led by Minh Ha Quang from 12/2022.
