Details of research fields

Field B: The research field includes researches on physical properties such as the electrooptic effect and crystal growth of inorganic crystal materials. It also includes their application to optical devices.

Field D: We investigate programming and programming systems, metaprogramming systems, programming language implementation, and related fields in support of both mainstream programming languages and domain-specific languages. Our current focus is on metaprogramming systems for mainstream languages that aid reliability and programmer productivity. Our lab is located in an interdisciplinary department that offers the potential of collaborating with other researchers working on practical problems in fields such as personal and ubiquitous informatics, AI/ML, data science, mechatronics, VR/AR/XR, the Internet of Things, communication technologies, etc.
