Dr. Yohei Fukumizu received the B.E. and the M.E. degrees in computer and systems engineering from Kobe University, Kobe, Japan, in 2001 and 2003, respectively, and received the Ph.D. degree in computer engineering from Kobe University, Kobe, Japan, in 2007.
He joined in the Solutions Research Organization (SRO), the Integrated Research Institute (IRI), Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, as post-doctoral researcher in 2007, where he participate in medical and biotechnology project.
From Apr 2008, he had been an assistant professor in Department of VLSI System Design, College of Science and Engineering, Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan, where he is currently an associate professor in Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering since Apr 2013.
His research interests currently focus on intellectual signal processing systems that contribute to a Safe and Secure Society, where topics include a recognition system with machine-learning, an image refinement algorithm, blind source separation for a medical system that detects precautions of cardiovascuiar and/or respiratory diseases, and computer aided diagnose system of breast cancer from mammogram. He is also interested in design methodologies of communication systems, where topics include development of a communication scheme/protocol, environmental noise issues in wireless-communication, channel coding techniques, especially error-correcting codes, digital modulation architectures, low power IC design methodologies, and design techniques of SoC/RF/mixed-signal integrated circuits including the ultra-wideband (UWB), the ubiquitous computing, the radio-frequency identification (RFID), and the sensor network related technologies.
Prof. Fukumizu is a member of IEEE, IEICE, IEE, IIEEJ, ITE, RISP, and JAFST. Also, he is a chair of Intelligent Watching Camera Research Technical Committee and a member of Image Analysis Technical Committee of Japan Image Analysis Association.
