Using music to track and connect with our emotional state

The research seeks to understand the extent to which music can be a viable, less intimidating, and more flexible alternative to defining and labelling moods, in comparison to simply using words. The acts of measuring, tracing, and quantifying emotions are all fundamental to mental health research. They’ve served as a vehicle for investigations into healthcare solutions for people with autism spectrum disorder and bipolar disorder among other psychiatric illnesses, and have shown to be subjects of interest to even neurotypical individuals who see it as a method of improving their wellbeing.

    I am a Tokyo-based interdisciplinary researcher focused on exploring the practical applications of human-computer interaction in the fields of mental health, wellbeing, trust, and behaviorism. I recently completed my master's degree in Media Design at Keio University and I am now pursuing a Ph.D. in computer science at Osaka Prefecture University. My research centers on designing more interventional ways to regulate mood and build emotional acuity in individuals through acoustic-based mood tracking. Upon completing my doctorate degree, I intend to continue working in emotion research, where I'd like to develop novel technologies geared towards providing easily accessible medical resources to those with psychological and neurological conditions.more
