Ryohei received his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Engineering from Kyoto Institute of Technology, Japan. He received his Ph.D. on Molecular Medicine from Kyoto University, Japan. The focus of the Ph.D. thesis was to investigate the mechanisms regulating the oncogenic transcription factor Runx. In the course of this research, he found Yap as a transcriptional co-activator. He then worked at the Osaka Bioscience Institute, Japan. During this period, his work focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying cell migration in cultured mammalian cells and integrin-mediated cell adhesions in Drosophila. He then joined Konrad Basler's group at University of Zurich, Switzerland. There he developed various in vivo genetic tools and the techniques to study cell signaling in Drosophila. He joined the Hafen group in 2015 and works on a systems approach to study size control in Drosophila.
