as of April 20, 2000.

I have been working for NEC Corporation in Japan since 1993. Now, I am conducting research about manipulation of micro electric parts at UC Berkeley for the company. Before joining the company, I studied in the Department of Electronic Engineering at Tohoku university in Japan and researched liquid crystal displays. I received the B.E. and M.E. degrees from the university, in 1991 and in 1993 respectively. At the company, I belong to Production Engineering Development Laboratory. I have been working on the development of production machines, such as bonding machines and servo track writers for hard disk drives. I used to design electrical circuits and software to drive and control these production machines.
