Deputy Director, RIKEN Center for Quantum Computing
Director, Office of the Center Director
Based on the Quantum Technology Innovation Strategy by Japanese government, eight institutes for quantum technology innovation and a core organization in RIKEN to coordinate the activities of eight institutes have been established. I am engaged in managing the core organization and promoting MEXT Q-LEAP project (Quantum information technology) as the head quarter. I am also working on research and development of superconducting integrated systems for fault tolerant quantum computers as one of the project performers of the Moonshot Research and Development Program of the Cabinet Office.
