Riku will be a first year Ph.D. student at Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII),
School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University from fall 2021.
Riku received his B.E. and M.S. at The University of Tokyo, where he worked with Prof. Hiroshi Saruwatari on real-time voice conversion using DNN, and Prof. Masahiko Inami on auditory intervention for behavioral change. He also worked as a researcn intern with Prof. Yang Zhang on mm-wave interactive sensing, and Dr. Fabrice Matulic on pen+tablet interaction.
His research focuses on developing and evaluating high-impact human-centered systems. He believes interactions through sensing users’ context ubiquitously and intervening 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 often adopts wide spectrum of ML techniques for achieving smart interactions, such as computer vision, speech synthesis, and natural language processing. He publishes papers at ACM CHI, CSCW, and other venues.

Displaying is a good opportunity to gain insight, so I actively exhibit what we have created.
I like writing codes and developing products as a team, so I actively undertake work or start projects with my friends.

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 the seminars I attended when in high school.
