Short Bio: I was born in Recife Brazil to
Japanese parents. My father
wrote papers on fish biology (piscicultura) at the
Universidade Federal de
Pernambuco. He was dispatched to Brazil by
Japan International Cooperation
Agency. We left Recife for Tokyo when I was two and a half. I
obtained BA and MA at International
Christian University, studying representation theory and
combinatorics with
Professor Hiroshi
Suzuki. From Oct 2012, I am in National Institute of Technology,
Oyama College in Japan as above. It looks like that I am the
first mathematician with brazilian citizenship who obtained a
permanent position in Japanese higher education. I first went back to
Recife Brazil in 2016 with mother and generaous help of Recifenses
