Ryo Takahashi received his MSc and PhD degrees in physics from Tokyo University of Science in 2003 and 2006, respectively. Since then, he has been able to compile an impressive record, first as an Expert Researcher at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) in Tokyo, and as a Research Scientist at RIKEN, Saitama, Japan. He was also a Researcher from 2010 to 2011 and an Assistant Professor from 2012 to 2016 at Kyoto University. Before joining KUAS, he was an Associate Professor between 2017-2018 at Aichi University of Technology.
Ryo’s current research interests include communication systems, power electronics, statistical physics, nonlinear dynamical systems, and their integrations and applications, including cyber-physical systems, the Internet of Things (IoT), and smart energy management systems. One of his recent research topics is power processing including power packet dispatching systems designed as the integration technologies of the information and power networks. He challenges novel system designs emerging from interdisciplinary fields based on theoretical analysis, experimental evaluations, and numerical simulations.
He received the Best Paper Award (KIYASU-Zen'ichi Award as First Prize) from the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineering (IEICE) in 2015, the Energies Best Paper Award (Third Prize) from MDPI in 2015. He is a member of the IEEE, the IEICE, the Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan (IEEJ), the Institute of Systems, Control and Information Engineering (ISCIE), the Physical Society of Japan (JPS), and the Japan Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (JSIAM).
In his spare time, he enjoys reading books of various genres and visiting bookstores. He also enjoys watching sports such as football and baseball, following both domestic and overseas leagues.
