She received the B.E. degree in mechanical engineering from Osaka university, Japan, in 1995. In the university laboratory, she studied the optimization of robot manipulators using GA (Genetic Algorithm) algorithm. In the same year, she joined Panasonic Co. (Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.). After joining the company, she was engaged in the development of high-speed A / D converters for digital read channel, high-speed optical communication LSIs for FTTH etc. at Semiconductor Research Center. During this period, she got a real sense of accomplishment in both field of pursuit of advanced technology research and commercial development. Since 2006, at Strategic Semiconductor Development Center, she has developed A / D converters for image sensors which are substitute for visual, one of five human senses. Since 2013, as a design leader at Advanced Research Division, she has been promoting the development of "Organic Photoconductive Film CMOS Image Sensors"" that have a new pixel structure completely different from the conventional structure contributing to next-generation imaging / sensing applications. In the near future, as people's lives are changing, such as using automatic driving, coexistence with autonomous robots, communication between machines, she will try to realize viewing, examining and predicting beyond human vision. She aims to provide technologies, products and systems that change people's lives safely and comfortably.
