I am interested in the way multiple sensory modalities such as vision, hearing, and touch interact to create a coherent and rich perceptual world. Previous research topics that I have also contributed to include: cross-modal interaction in position perception (such as the ventriloquism effect and the rubber hand illusion), comparing temporal sensitivity between vision and hearing, cross-modal material perception of wood, as well as neural representations of cross-modal correspondence. Some of these works are still ongoing and, currently, I am investigating how cross-modal processing operates during ensemble coding and/or serial dependence.
After receiving my PhD from the University of Tokyo in 2014, I worked at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan as a postdoctoral researcher. Since 2015, I have been a JSPS postdoctoral fellow affiliated with Kyoto University. I joined the Whitney Lab in May 2016.
