I joined The University of Tokyo after a posdoc at University of Oxford, MaxPlanck institute, and University of Cambridge. I’m interested in interdisciplinary understanding of human and artificial intelligence and the associated creativity. Particularly, my topic is to investigate universality and specialty in music and language. Further, I try to devise a computational model of creativity in the brain based on neurophysiological data, and understand the origin of creativity and the developmental process. Then, using the model, I’m trying to generate novel music theory that covers both mathematical and neural phenomena, and compose contemporary music.
