I was born and raised in Japan, where I got my BA and MA. I lived in Canad from 2005 to 2013, where I got my PhD and did post-doc thereafter. Then, I moved back to Japan to be a visiting assistant professor at Intelligent Robotics Laboratory of Graduate School of Engineering Science, Osaka University. As of 2014, I am a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) postdoctoral fellow at Kyoto University, and guest associate professor at Osaka University. I also teach at Kwansei Gakuin University as sessional instructor.
I work mainly in Epistemology, Philosophical Methodology, and Philosophy of Trust. The areas or problems I'm especially interested in are Contextualism/Invariantism, Theories of Knowledge, Epistemic Value, Epistemology of Intuition, the Importance of Intuition for Philosophy, and Human-Machine Trust.
My general philosophical interests range over Philosophy of Language, Mind, Ethics, Meta-Ethics, and Phenomenology (my MA thesis is on Husserl).
