Dr Yoshida undertook her BSc and MSc at the University of Keio, Japan, before completing her PhD jointly at the universities of Keio and Manchester.  Following research fellowships at the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science for Japanese Junior Scientists and the School
of Cognitive and Computing Sciences at Sussex University, Dr Yoshida worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Maths and Computer Science at University of Leicester.  She joined the Department of Computing at Imperial in 2002 as a Lecturer, and is currently a Reader and an EPSRC Advanced Fellow.

Dr Yoshida's research interests are focused on the theory of concurrent and mobile computation. Currently she is working on: semantics and type theory for concurrency and mobile processes; web services; concurrent and distributed object-oriented programming languages; secure information flow analysis; access control of mobile computing; and Hoare logic for higher-order imperative functions.

She has acted as a programme co-chair of CONCUR'94 and a committee member for several conferences.  She is an invited expert for the Web Services Choreography Working Group.
