Kentaro Sano is the team leader of the Processor Research team at RIKEN.
Dr. Kentaro Sano received his Ph.D. from GSIS, Tohoku University, in 2000.
Since 2000 until 2005, he had been a Research Associate at Tohoku University.
Since 2005 until 2018, he has been an Associate Professor at Tohoku University.
He was a visiting researcher at the Department of Computing, Imperial College,
London, and Maxeler corporation in 2006 and 2007. Since 2017 until present,
he has been a team leader of a processor research team at R-CCS, Riken.
His research interests include FPGA-based high-performance reconfigurable
computing systems especially for scientific numerical simulations and machine
learning, high-level synthesis compilers and tools for reconfigurable custom
computing machines, and system architectures for next-generation supercomputing
based on the data-flow computing model.
