He received his B.S. and M.S. in Physics from the University of Tokyo, and his Ph.D. in Business Science from Tsukuba University, Japan. He studied quantum electronics, nonlinear physics, and statistical physics. Dr. Tadao Shimizu, now a professor emeritus of Tokyo University, was his mentor. He also studied chance discovery, marketing, cognitive sciences, and statistics. Dr. Yukio Ohsawa, a former associate professor of Tsukuba University and now a professor of Tokyo University, was his mentor. Since then, he has been making productive collaborative researches with Professor Ohsawa for many years. As a computational social scientist, he seeks to solve socio-economic problems by modeling, forecasting, and controlling stochastic temporal behaviours of non-linearly interacting components, the diffusion and reaction phenomena in innovative social organisations, and the latent dynamic structures behind human interactions and communications.
