About me

I’m Tatsuya Yatagawa, currently working as an assistant professor (in Japan, it is typically a non-tenured faculty position before the senior lecturer) at Graduate School of Engineering, The University of Tokyo. My research interest centers on computer graphics technologies, particularly those for image/video editing and physically based rendering.
