Tomo Nakamura Laboratory ~Nonlinear data analysis~


Tomomichi NakamuraProfessor

Doctor of Philosophy (University of Western Australia)

I am a Professor with the Graduate School of Information Science at University of Hyogo.  I have joined this school in 2011.
I got my Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the University of Western Australia (UWA), Perth, Australia in 2004. Prior to my appointment at University of Hyogo, I worked with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) in Hong Kong and Sony Computer Science Laboratories (Sony CSL) in Tokyo, Japan.
My research is so-called data analysis. Data analysis is an application of mathematics using computers for various phenomena that occur in the real world, and I often use a huge amount of data. I am interested in the broad areas of Nonlinear Dynamical Systems Theory and Complex Systems Theory.  Specifically, I am interested in the development of modern mathematical techniques and the application of these techniques to real-world problems.  I am very interested in phenomena involving nonlinearity and phenomena that show complicated behaviours. The research I am aiming for is to find a door that no one is aware of and open the door. Hence, the “data analysis” I make might be a kind of philosophy using mathematics, computers, and data.

Research Interests

・Building models using data (statistical modelling)
・Characteristic analysis using statistical hypothesis testing (method of surrogate data)
・Constructing networks from data
・Analysis of phenomena using simulation

Research keywords: time series analysis, statistical modelling, dynamical system, nonlinear phenomena, optimization problems
