TAKANORI
FUJIWARA
Takanori Fujiwara is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Science and Technology (ITN), Linköping University. He is currently working for the division for Media and Information Technology (MIT, led by Dr. Anders Ynnerman) and the Information Visualization group (iVis, chaired by Dr. Andreas Kerren). His research interest lies in intersctions of network science, machine learning, and visual analytics. He received his B.E. (2009) and Master's degree in environmental studies (2011) from University of Tokyo; Ph.D. in computer science from University of California, Davis (2021) where he was with VIDI Labs. During 2011-2015, he worked for Kajima Corporation in Japan.
