Kiyosu Maeda | 前田 清洲

I'm an incoming Ph.D. student at Princeton University Computer Science. My research interests are computer-mediated communication, Human-AI integration, and virtual/augmented reality. I received B.E. and M.S. at the University of Tokyo advised by Prof. Jun Rekimoto. I also worked as a research intern with Prof. David Lindlbauer at CMU HCII on adaptive interfaces for multi-user mixed reality interaction.
