yudai tanaka

a researcher inventing new body-centric sensations

I’m a first year phd student in the department of computer science at University of Chicago advised by Prof. Pedro Lopes. My research aim is to invent more pervasive techniques for computational interventions to our body that unleash what we feel. Currently, I am interested in extending electrical stimulations to human body such as galvanic vestibular stimulation.
