Greetings, students. My name is Yokoyama, and my area of research is networking technologies and
their applications. Networks are considered an essential aspect, if not a necessity, in a wide
range of systems and fields. Therefore, being well-versed in networks often implies the ability
and competence to involve oneself in a variety of projects, both social and technological. This
alone can be considered a significant strength.
Applying networking technologies requires a thorough understanding of programs, computers, and networks.
Therefore, in my research lab, students are encouraged to take a hands-on approach to acquiring
knowledge and skills, and eventually take on the challenge of turning their ideas into something
tangible. A wonderful feature of ICT is that it not only provides one with the ability to implement
ideas, old and new, but also the excitement of testing and improving upon them.
Research in my lab is such a process, where students must investigate their ideas, consider existing
solutions, propose alternative solutions, design and program original implementations, evaluate
results, and report their findings. It is an intellectually comprehensive experience, but well
worth it; it is not just the accumulation of knowledge that we are after, but also the evolution
of one’s capacity to think and feel critically.
Students may involve themselves in literally any research topic involving networks and computers.
Join us in our lab for a flexible, fun and highly enlightening academic experience!
