I am a Professor in the College of Image Arts and Sciences, Ritsumeikan University, in Kyoto. My research and teaching interests are in interactive digital media, visual perception of art, pattern recognition, and self-organization. Before joining Ritsumeikan, I was a Senior Research Scientist at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Labs located in southern Kyoto prefecture. Before moving to Japan, I was a member of the faculty at the University of Southern California and the research faculty at Caltech. I studied Physics at McGill and the University of British Columbia.
