I am a Research Staff Member at IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center. I received the B.E. and M.E. degrees in computer engineering from Kobe University, Japan, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from KAIST, Korea (in 2011, 2013, and 2018, respectively). I have been serving as a committee member of IEEE CEDA Design Automation Technology Committee since 2018. My current research focus lies on VLSI physical design, design for manufacturability, and design automation of non-conventional computing systems.
