Chair, Department of Informatics
SOKENDAI (The Graduate University for Advanced Studies)

I am the director of Information Systems Architecture Research Division in NII, and the chair of Department of Informatics in SOKENDAI. I received BS and MS degrees from Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Shanghai Jiaotong Unviersity in 1988 and 1991 respectively, and Ph.D degree from Department of Information Engineering of University of Tokyo in 1996. I became a lecturer (assistant professor) in 1997 and an associate professor in 2000 in University of Tokyo. I joined National Institute of Informatics as a full professor in 2008. I am also a visiting professor of JAIST, and a visiting professor (under the Changjiang Scholar Program) of Peking University.

My main interest is in programming languages and software construction in general, and functional programming, program transformation and model driven software development in particular. I am very interested in program calculation based on programming algebras, and I am looking into how to apply this theory to automatic program optimization, systematic parallelization of sequential programs, efficient manipulation of structured documents, and bidirectional model transformation for software development.

I welcome excellent people to join my group as intern students, PhD students, or post-doc researchers (JSPS Fellowship Program and DAAD-NII Program).
