Research Interests

My research object is to understand the social dynamics underlying the collective behavior, and to design the learning environment for facilitating the collective organization. The main methods of my research are to measure the collective behavior by using motion capture system and to analyze these measured spatio-temporal data based on dynamical system theory, and to simulate the collective behavior using mathematical models.
