About Me

I am a quantitative geneticist at the Holstein Cattle Association of Japan in Hokkaido Branch. And also, I am a visiting scholoar of Dr. Morota’s lab at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. My research focuses on statistical methods to implement efficient selection in animals and plants and the development of computational software for large-scale data analysis. My recent studies include the analysis of heterogeneous data and time-series data in the phenotypic prediction framework.
