ProfileFrom 2019 to 2022, I worked as a researcher at the Graduate School of Science and Technology, Keio University. I was in charge of research on an application execution platform for distributed Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) environments, as well as on research of an autonomous distributed IoT system and its integration mechanism. Since 2022, I have been working at SoftBank Corp. and in charge of research on a robust and scalable mobile core network.
