Our primary research area is computational science, often referred to as the 'Third Pillar of Science' and considered an analytical tool alongside theoretical and experimental science. The field of computational science has grown rapidly since the advent of computers. In this field, research focusing on engineering theories and applications is known as computational engineering or computational mechanics. While numerical simulation was initially the primary tool for research, design optimization and data science techniques for obtaining various types of information from the large-scale data produced have also become targets.

Our laboratory is currently focusing on the 'Digital Twin' technology, which refers to replicating a physical object, process, or system into digital space. We are continuing the research of the Digital Twin Laboratory, which was established in 2020, and are now managing it in collaboration with Professor Matsuo and Assistant Professor Asada, who are members of the Research Institute for Science & Technology and Visitting Professor Fujii. We are researching critical technologies and systems that will be crucial in a future society where Digital Twin technology is widely adopted and information is maximally utilized. While our research focuses particularly on Ditital Twin technology for manufacturing, we also explore applying it to other systems, such as transportation infrastructure.
