Areas of specialization
Laboratory/research office Human Centric AI Software innovation
My vision is centered around leveraging AI in software designed to tackle societal issues. I'm dedicated to exploring software development technologies and methodologies through the lens of AI, aiming to apply these insights to solve real-world problems. My research specifically targets integrating AI with software, with a focus on human-centric areas like welfare and education. For example, in Gerontechnology -a field at the crossroads of gerontology and engineering- I'm investigating the use of AI to provide software-based support for the elderly.
