Toshiya Hachisuka
Junior Associate Professor (Koushi in Japanese - tenured) Dept. of Creative Informatics, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 113-8656 JAPAN thachisuka_at_siggraph.org Pronunciation of my name: "Hachisuka" has silent "u" (e.g., "Ha-chee-ska"). "Toshiya" has stress on "To" (e.g., "Toe-she-ya"). I am looking for candidates for graduate students who are plannning to study toward a PhD degree in the end. If you are interested in joining us, please first read this and contact me by stating your topic of interest within computer graphics before you apply. For more information, please take a look at this page. International students might want to visit this page as well. I consider to accept you as a research student only if you are a MEXT candidate (as it is required for our department) or coming here to work only on an actual research project with a researcher I know. Otherwise, please take the entrance exam *directly* by choosing me as your advisor. I recommend you to choose another lab for becoming an exchange student if it is only for the sake of getting course credits. |
