Mamoru Ichikawa


TV program director, Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK), Tokyo, Japan

Jan 21–Mar 18, 2016. Working with Jay Hamilton, Communication Dept.

My research theme is “How to make TV programs survive in new media world”. During my stay at H-STAR, I want to learn how to optimize TV programs for many kinds of media, and how to create new style of storytelling to get attention from Millennials. In addition to that, I’m also interested in new healthcare technologies and services produced in Silicon Valley (e.g. Healthcare and Virtual Reality), because of my career as healthcare journalist for more than 10 years.
