Program-Specific Researcher in the Department of Philosophy at Kyoto University.
He received a PhD in philosophy at Keio University and a postdoc training in cognitive science at The University of Tokyo. His previous job was a research fellow at the University of Brighton (in a Leverhulme Trust project on diagrammatic reasoning). He is studying human thinking and reasoning, by applying theoretical ideas as in logic and philosophy to psychological experiments. He received the Best Paper Award at IEEE-VL/HCC 2015.

PhD in Anthropology at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales de Paris - EHESS.
His recent investigations focus on the study of contemporary indigenous Amazonian communities and their relationship with the state and local and international markets, as well as analysing the practice of communal resistance. He has investigated the anthropological, social and political effects of extractive processes (timber and petroleum) and their effects at the ritual and cosmographical level.

Research professor in the Department of Psychology at Korea University.
He studied the language development of children and the understanding of the prosocial behavior of infants for his master's degree at Yonsei University. For his doctoral degree at Vanderbilt University, he studied various statistical models for analyzing data from psychological and educational research. Now he is interested in methods for analyzing experimental data, including data from functional magnetic resonance imaging.
