Research Themes

Our human beings are supported by diverse social systems, most of which is realized under complex interactions among many and unspecified users. For example, in case of the streaming services over the Internet, access concentration on popular contents will degrade the quality of experience (QoE), e.g., increase of play-out delay, occurrence of jitter, and/or deterioration of video quality. Another example is traffic jam in driving, which will be caused by individuals' rational route selection. My main research interest is to achieve sustainable social systems under such competitive behavior among individuals. I usually utilize mathematical models, e.g., mathematical optimization for optimal system design and game theoretic approaches for distributed control. The following are examples of recent research themes.

...
Sustainable NFV Networks for Beyond 5G
...
Selfish yet Optimal Control based on Game Theory
...
Network Optimization for Large-Scale Content Distribution
...
Human-Harmonized and Risk-Aware Automatic Evacuation Assistance
...
Network Security in Blockchain Systems
...
Distributed Cooperative Control for Large-Scale IoT Networks
