I am a postdoctoral researcher at Department of Biological Science, the University of Tokyo, Japan. I'm affiliated with Iwasaki Lab as a Research Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (PD).

My main research theme is evolutionary and computational biology, more precisely, phylogenetic analyses. My research activities have been mainly focused on overcoming methodological and computational limitations to phylogenetic challenges associated with the forthcoming era of big ‘omics’ data. My current research topic is the large-scale phylodynamics for understanding the evolutionary and epidemiological dynamics of pathogens, which is a key objective shared by many infectious-disease studies. For more on my research, please see a summary of past and current research activities, publications or profile.

The latest CV (2018/02) is available from here.
