Shunske Sato
Osaka University, Japan

Shunsuke Sato received the B.S, M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in applied physics from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 1963, 1965, and 1968, respectively. From1968 to 1970, he was with Tokyo Medical and Dental University. In 1970, he moved to Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, and he finished his career there as a Professor at the Department of Mechanical Science and Biomedical Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering Science, on 31st March 2004. He is a Professor Emeritus of Osaka University. During 1983, he was a Visiting Professor at the University of Naples, Naples, Italy and the University of Salerno, Salerno, Italy. He was the president of Japanese Society for Medical and Biological Engineering for two years from May 2000. Since April 2004, he is with Aino University, a private university for health sciences, in Osaka, where he teaches undergraduate students mathematics and bioengineering. He has worked in the areas including biological signal processing, image reconstruction of a moving object in the X-ray CT, application of Wiener’s theory of nonlinear noise to system identification, the first-passage-time problems of diffusion processes and time-frequency distribution. His research interests are in the mathematical models and analyses of biological systems such as neuronal firing and biological rhythm and fluctuation.
