Welcome to Naoya

We have the pleasure to welcome Naoya Takeishi as a new postdoc into our team. His expertise and experience with integrating the theoretical understanding of physical systems into machine learning as well as with data-driven analysis of nonlinear dynamical systems is a strong contribution to our research portfolio and we are looking forward to inspiring and enriching discussions and collaborations. Naoya will also reinforce our team in the industrial project IAI: Industrial Artificial Intelligence for intelligent machines and manufacturing digitalization. In addition to all the science he is about to immerse to, we wish he enjoys his stay with us and in Geneva, Switzerland and we hope to learn from him a little more about Japan and its culture. ようこそ!
