Research Interest

His research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), most specifically in human augmentation. A field of human-computer interaction which aims to bring an expansion, and replenishment to human capabilities with the aid of technological methods and processes.

His area of specialty is technologically augmented sports, especially water sports. Being an innovative person, he is constantly working on bringing something new to his field. He is currently on research about wide-filed and harmless fluid measurement technology for swimming. This is a technology born out of creativity, which is proposed to assist swimmers and make them able to contribute towards creating a more efficient and effective swimming form.

Due to his uniqueness, research achievement, and excellent analytical skills, it was easier for various organizations to trust in his abilities. This helped him in getting grants without stress. He got the JST Basic Research Program ACT-I Acceleration Phase Grant for his research on Developing a 3D Water Flow Measurement Technology for Swimming Pools and Research Fellowship for Young Scientists DC2 Grant.


Shogo Yamashita got his Ph.D. degree from Jun Rekimoto’s laboratory at the University of Tokyo. He was a student with remarkable studying and researching capacity. He studied and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in the National College of Technology at Kagawa College. He obtained a master’s degree in interdisciplinary information studies from the University of Tokyo, where he got the University of Tokyo’s President’s award for a student. Just before enrolling for his doctorate in interdisciplinary information studies in the University of Tokyo which will be completed in 2020, he got the III/GSII Dean’s award which is an award for the best student of the graduate school of interdisciplinary information studies.
