His research focuses on the computational underpinnings and eco-evolutionary implications of human social learning and their relationships with group decision-making and collective behaviour. Using computational modelling and Bayesian statistical methods, coupled with online realtime behavioural experimentation, he is quantitatively approaching human social behaviour and group dynamics. He also uses mathematical models to study population dynamics and evolutionary games.
He obtained his PhD and MSc in Behavioural Science (2015 and 2012), and a BSc in Fisheries Science (2010) from Hokkaido University, Hakodate, Japan. He moved to the University of St Andrews, Scotland as the JSPS Overseas Research Fellow (2015-2017). Then He obtained a JSPS Research Fellowship (PD; 2017-2019) jointly working at both the University of St Andrews and the Graduate University of Advanced Studies (a.k.a. 'SOKENDAI'), Hayama, Japan. From 2019, he has been a research scientist collaborating with Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gaissmaier at the University of Konstanz, Germany.
