Riku has been a Ph.D. student at Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII),
School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University since 2021.08.
He is advised by Dr. Mayank Goel.
Before coming to CMU, he received his B.E. and M.S. at The University of Tokyo, Japan,
where he worked with Dr.
Hiroshi Saruwatari on real-time voice conversion using DNN, and Dr.
Masahiko Inami on auditory intervention for behavioral change.
His research focuses on developing and evaluating high-impact intelligent systems. He believes interactions through sensing users’ context ubiquitously and intervening with them suitably are key for changing our daily lives in a pervasive manner. His recent works are across human behavior analysis, wearable sensing systems, human-AI collaboration, and persuasive technologies. He uses a wide spectrum of ML techniques for achieving smart multimodal interactions, such as computer vision, speech processing, and natural language processing. He publishes papers at ACM CHI, Ubicomp, CSCW, IUI, ICMI, and other venues.

I am willing to have talks, especially to (junior) high school students. This comes from my personal experience of having been exposed to the joy of science and technology at seminars I attended when in high school.
