We aim to realize a future Internet architecture that enables new use and traffic of large-scale data, such as those produced by sensors or social information. I promote research to improve the values of informational traffic, without sticking to the common sense, by innovating network architecture from host-oriented communication towards information-oriented transfer using data names, through implementing new network control systems applying dynamics of the natural and living world and biological fluctuations and making use of large data. I am working on a wide range of studies: based on practical studies, such as architecture and protocols to support such services, I will work on theoretical studies of modeling their performances.
Specifically, with regard to the future of internet architecture, I am focusing on Information Centric Networking (ICN), by which communication partners are specified using information (content) name, and I am working on a large number of challenges, such as methods of naming methods, pathway control, privacy or migration from the internet. In addition to considering power saving of the Internet by the use of ICN, within the GreenICN joint project together with European research institutions, I am are working in cooperation with American universities on routing protocols to innovate mobile internet.

The four-digit phone numbers are extensions at Osaka University. To call directly from outside Osaka University, dial a phone number marked S after (area code 06) 6850 or a phone number marked T after (area code 06) 6879. For a phone number marked S (extension), however, first dial the main phone number (06) 6879-5111.
