Courses to Offer





Our world is undergoing rapid change, with big issues facing us now and in the future. The global temperature is increasing, while biodiversity is decreasing, unknown diseases are emerging, and wars are being fought again. How can you become a problem-solver? Having a background in science and technology will provide you with the creative knowledge to overcome the economic, social, and environmental challenges of the future. Join me on this journey and see how rewarding, fun, and engaging natural science can be.

Summary of the Research Undertaken

I`m a chemist who specialist in biophysics, especially protein folding and dynamics; however, during my career, I did research in a variety of scientific subjects such as genetics, molecular, and cell biology while at Eikei University I aim to spread my wings and expand my research further towards Biodiversity and Ecology.

Research Themes

  • Urban greening and biodiversity
  • Renewable energies the solution or the future Pandora’s box
  • Data analysis in R, towards a better understanding of risk management for renewable energies
  • Are GMO’s the solution or another Pandora’s box
  • Supporting and analyzing the Japanese way of internationalization
