About the Author

Takamichi Nakamoto, Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan.
Nakamoto received his Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan. He worked for Hitachi in the area of VLSI design automation from 1984 to 1987. In 1987, he joined Tokyo Institute of Technology as a Research Associate. In 1993, he became an Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology. From 1996 to 1997, he was a Visiting Scientist at Pacific Northwest Laboratories, Richland, WA, USA. He has studied an odour sensing system for 25 years, an odour recorder for 13 years and an olfactory display for 7 years. He currently teaches multivariate data analysis and computer architecture to undergraduate students, and electronic measurement, a part of bio-sensing system and a part of advanced electronic matter to graduate students.
