Tsuyoshi Takatani
| DC1 Fellow/Ph.D Student

Career Objective

I am motivated on building a successful career as a researcher in computer science. I have worked as a research engineer so I know how to proceed not only fundamental research but also applied research. I am looking for a position as a researcher where I can fully utilize my skills and experiences in computer science.

Work History

Apr. 2017 - Presetn

Research Fellow
| Japan Society for the Promotion of Science

I was accepted in JSPS Research Fellowship for Young Scientists. Research Fellow (DC1) is only for doctoral students and the contract is kept for three years, till Mar. 2020. The acceptance rate was around 20%. My research theme is "Reconstruction of shape and material based on photometric analysis using images". Technical reports will be released.

Oct. 2016 - Present

Research Assistant
| Nara Institute of Science and Technology

I work for Optical Media Interface Lab. in NAIST. My research theme is about hyperspectral and thermal imaging for analyzing material properties. The work is related to the JSPS Research Fellowship theme.

Apr. 2013 - Sep. 2016

Research Engineer
| Toshiba

I worked at Research & Development Center in Toshiba. My main work was to make SLAM (Simulteneous Localization and Mapping), available for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and autonomous driving systems. I experienced an industrial development; surveying marckets, benchmarking, agile developing, patenting.

Aug. 2011 - Oct. 2011

Research Intern
| Microsoft Research Asia

I worked on photometric stereo using multispectral images, supervised by Dr. Yasuyuki Matsushita in Visual Computing Group. I also collaborated with Dr. Stephen Lin. The work has been released as an oral presentation in MVA2013.


Oct. 2016 - Present

Ph.D. in Computer Science
| Nara Institute of Science and Technology

I belong to Optical Media Interface Lab. in NAIST, supervised by Prof. Yasuhiro Mukaigawa. My theme is to physically replicate an object with arbitrary material properties measured by photometrci analysis. The work is related to computational photography, computer vision, computer graphics, and digital fabrication.

Apr. 2011 - Mar. 2013

M.S. in Information Science
| Osaka University

Apr. 2009 - Mar. 2011

B.E. in Engineering Science
| Osaka University

Apr. 2004 - Mar. 2009

A.E. in Electronic Engineering
