Research Contents

My research target is that many useful systems are created in the world by improving programing education and development projects, supporting introduction of requirement development, and improving development processes using development tools.

Attractive Factors of My Research

Information and communication technology becomes imperative for the world. However, it is not enough utilized. I study for creating genuinely usable ICT systems from the viewpoints of improving software development and ICT engineer education.
