My teaching activities include: supervising graduate and undergraduate students, teaching classes at Tsukuba, teaching mini-courses at other institutions and companies, and coaching the ICPC programming contest team.
I am passionate about teaching and helping students develop their potential, and I love the opportunities to talk with and support creative people. I know I could be doing much more when it comes to Scientific Communication, so if you have any ideas of activities that I could help with, I'd be happy to hear them!
This is the list of the students that I am currently supervising. If you want to join our group, please see this page for important information.

I am teaching the following lectures at the University of Tsukuba. Some of these lectures have open materials: be sure to check their webpage!
- Experiment Design for Computer Science (0AL0400): This lecture teaches basic concepts of experimentation and analysis of experimental data to novice CS researchers. Webpage
- Topics in Computational Sciences I (0AL5402): This colloquium style lecture bring speakers from several areas to introduce new ideas for our master students.
- Programming Challenges (GB20602): This lecture aims to improve the programming skill of our undergraduate students using programming competitions. Webpage.
- Mathematics for Computer Science (GB13604): This lecture teaches basic mathematical concepts useful for CS majors.
- Introduction to Information Science: Computation (GA12201): This lecture introduces different areas of CS research to 1st year undergraduate students.
- Introduction to Programming (GA18112): This lecture teaches the basics of python programming to 1st year undergraduate students.
I have participated in several non-regular teaching activities. Here is a short list of recent ones. A more detailed list is on the External Courses page.
