I am an incoming graduate student at MIT Aero/Astro in the Aerospace Controls Laboratory. My research interests lie in the field of control, autonomy, and optimization. I received my bachelor's degree from Kyushu University in Japan and had a one-year research experience at University of Michigan.
My previous research experiences include detumbling an under-actuated spacecraft with a single-axis magnetic actuator, quadcopter path-planning with an onboard EMPC controller, and the Q-Li satellite development at Kyushu University.
