I am currently Ph.D. student at Tokyo Institute of Technology (from Apr. 2015). I'm granted Research Fellowship for Young Scientists from Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (from Apr. 2017-). My supervisor is Professor Masatoshi Okutomi. I also worked with Assistant Professor Akihiko Torii. My research interests are feature matching, 3D reconstruction, and large-scale localization.
