The web (internet) was born more than 30 years ago, now it became an indispensable service for us. On the web, there are a lot of information such as documents written by someone, photos / videos taken by someone, sounds spoken by someone. I am working on research to extract useful information focusing on documents (texts) and relationships between users (social graphs). Recently, I am utilizing big data of social media and analyze the relevance to real world. I am also actively conducting joint research with industries.

According to the rules of our university, I cannot become your supervisor, who is an assistant professor. A lecturer, associate professor, and professor can became your supervisor. If you are a student and continue to be interested in our university, I encourage you to contact other faculty staffs.

Theme1:Altmetrics: Research Evaluation on Social Media

Overview Altmetrics (

I am working on developing novel index for research paper evaluation using social media. As a part of this, I have been provided a web service ( Altmetrics) in order to analyze trends of Japanese research papers on the web.

The previous index for research paper evaluation is based on the number of citations in research papers. The problem with this index is that the evaluator is limited to researchers and it takes time to calculate the index. Today, readers of research papers are not limited to researchers. Therefore, we need an evaluation index that also takes into the index the degree of attention other than researchers.

Theme2:Web and Social Media Analysis


I aim to reproduce real world information using web data, especially social media data. It is fairly costly to observe real world. For example, we will conduct a questionnaire survey and put on sensor devices according to the environment to be observed. Recently, we will acquire useful information on the web. However, it is pointed out that users are biased on the web. In other words, the relationship between the web and the real world is not always clear. In this study, we will investigate the characteristics of social media data and clarify the relationship between the web and the real world.

Theme3:Web and Social Media Mining

Geo-Tweets in the World

Social media is being used on a daily basis, and various information is posted there. I have been operating data collecting systems, especially from social media (Twitter), where various information is posted. As the result, I can handle almost all tweets with location information and Japanese/English retweets, and large scale social graphs. I am conducting researches to make the most of these data.
