About

Thank you for your visiting!

I am a PhD candidate at Kyoto University and working in the Natural Language Processing Lab. My research interests are in knowledge acquisition for dialogue systems.

There are many technologies which have the potential to change the world but stay cooped up in research fields. I would like to take them out from there.
