I am a professor (kyoju) in the Faculty of Environment and Information Studies at Keio University's Shonan Fujisawa Campus. I am a member of the Internet Research Laboratory, headed by Professor Jun Murai. I also teach in the Cyberinformatics (CI) program of the Graduate School of Media and Governance.

I am deeply involved in the creation of GIGA, our new undergraduate Global Information and Communication Technology and Governance Academic Program. See the cool videos here, as well as the interviews with various faculty members. Our people do amazing, socially relevant work, as well as leading-edge research.

My current primary research topics are systems for distributed quantum computing and more generally post-Moore's Law computer architecture, and All-IP computer architectures, replacing all of the interconnects in a computer system with IP-based communication, scaling from multicore chips to Internet levels. I am also interested in other forms of unconventional computing, IPv6, mobile networking, parallel & distributed operating systems and file systems, and distance learning (e.g., School of Internet Asia Project).

A while back (October 2014), some of our research, on quantum networking via container ship, was profiled in New Scientist!

I teach Operating Systems, Computer Architecture, Linear Algebra and Quantum Information Processing for undergraduates, and Design and Implementation of System Software for master's students. See my Classes page.

My personal interests include jazz and go, both watching and playing. I used to play a lot of basketball, volleyball, and bridge. I enjoy movies, books, hiking, ocean activities, and above all, time with my family and friends.

Below is a selection of talks I have given over the years, most recent at the top left, going down the left column from there.

During my year's research leave at Duke University in 2014-15, I was interviewed for West Virginia Public Radio's "Inspiring West Virginians". My interview is here.
