He has a concurrent position at RIKEN, Japan, serving as Deputy Director of RIKEN RQC-Fujitsu Collaboration Centre. He is responsible for research on quantum computing at Fujitsu. At Quantum Laboratory, he leads research on all the technology layers of quantum computing: quantum devices, platform, software and application. Fujitsu and RIKEN are planning to release a 64-qubit superconducting quantum computer from RIKEN RQC-Fujitsu Collaboration Centre this fiscal year. Fujitsu also has research collaborations with TU Delft on diamond-spin qubit technology and with Osaka University on software technology for fault tolerant quantum computing.
Before engaging in quantum computing, he had been working on research and development of post-silicon devices using carbon nanotubes and two-dimensional materials, and obtained several research awards, including JSAP (the Japan Society of Applied Physics) Fellow Award in 2018. He has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from University of Minnesota, USA. He also had an MS in Science and Engineering (Physics) from University of Tsukuba, Japan. His research areas include quantum computing, nanoelectronics, and nanomaterials.
