Current activity
In the academic year 201819 I am on leave. I will visit MIT
from August 2018 to March 2019.
I plan to attend the Spring Central and Western Joint
Sectional Meeting of the AMS from March 2224 at the
University of Hawaii.
Here is a combined schedule for all Tokyo
Tech mathematics seminars (with topology talks usually
on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5). See also the Komaba
topology
seminar (Tuesdays from 5 to 6:30).
Professional Information
I research and teach mathematics. My past and present
PhD students are
Kouki Sato (2017)
Keita Nakagane.
I have spent time at the following institutions:

Research
My main research interests are in lowdimensional geometric
topology, in particular in contact 3manifolds and Legendrian
knots (and their Floer homologies), as well as in classical
knot invariants such as the Homfly polynomial. Recently I
started doing work on graphs and hypergraphs, too. I
introduced two new polynomial invariants of integer
polymatroids that generalize onevariable valuations of the
Tutte polynomial. Through combinatorics, I found interesting
new connections between knot polynomials and Floer homology.
