He received his Doctorate of Philosophy in Psychology (Experimental) from Kanazawa University, Japan. His research broadly focuses on the visual perception, tactile perception, and cognition in the blind, visually impaired and sighted populations. During his time at ERI and SKERI, he investigated tactile aesthetics, neuroaesthetics, and tactile memory in these populations by employing the novel behavioral measures (tactile rating scale) in combination with cutting-edge neuroimaging techniques (fMRI).
