Who is Yoshi Yamamoto ...
The data analysis of biomedical and health-related information is my specialty. In a research side, focusing mainly on health-related data in daily settings, I investigate methods for the data collection, data analysis, interpretation of the results, and the use of information obtained for health risk evaluation and disease prevention. In addition to the development of new methodology for signal processing, modelling, and statistical analysis, of the standard physiological measurements, recently I also focus on a broader health-related data including behavioral and social ones. In an education side, I aim at teaching students with diverse interests and concerns so that they acquire specialized and integrated analytic skills required in the era of information and communication technology.
Yoshiharu Yamamoto received his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in educational sciences from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, respectively in 1984, 1986 and 1990. From 1989 to 1993, he was working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, mainly on bio-signal processing for human cardiovascular and autonomic physiology. In 1993, he was granted a faculty position at the Graduate School of Education, the University of Tokyo, and has been a Full Professor at the Educational Physiology Laboratory, Graduate School of Education, the University of Tokyo since 2000, where he is teaching and researching physiological bases and data analytics in a various fields of health sciences. His current research interest includes biomedical signal processing, nonlinear and statistical bio-dynamics, and health informatics. He has published >160 full refereed journal papers and >60 refereed conference proceedings and correspondence in English language, and is currently an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering and an editorial board member of Biomedical Physics & Engineering Express.
