Koji Noshita is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan. He received his Ph.D. in mathematical biology from Kyushu University, Fukuoka, Japan, in 2015. His research interest lay in theoretical morphology and morphometrics of gastropod shells. After graduation, Koji worked as a postdoc researcher at the lab of Dr. Hiroyoshi Iwata in the University of Tokyo. His research involved 3D image processing, statistical analysis, and mathematical modeling for quantifying plant architecture. From 2016, he joined the project "Cultivation with Information Science" of Precursory Research for Embryonic Science and Technology (PRESTO) in Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) as a JST PRESTO researcher. His research group is currently working on developing theories and technologies for morphometric analysis of animals, plants, and artifacts towards a quantitative understanding of morphological evolution.
