Data Scientist


I’m a data scientist and researcher at a Japanese media company, engaged in data analysis and service developments. While studying computer science at university, I was also involved in a university press. My research interests include the opportunities and challenges of pre-trained language models for news media. I enjoy participating in machine learning competitions and won the first place on a Kaggle competition, hosted a Kaggle Days Tokyo competition, and published three books. The International News Media Association gave me “ 30 Under 30 Awards and Grand Prize” in 2020.
