Q & A

What fields of study do you supervise?
Water resource, food supply issues under Climate Change, Biomass Energy
What type of students do you expect?
Students who can make continual efforts even if it takes some time to get to their goals.
What inspired you to begin research in your field?
In 1993, on account of extreme weather (cold summer), I believed that food supply systems were vulnerable and it was necessary to consider environmental risk management.
What kind of social contribution do you make through your research?
Any messages for prospective Environmental Innovators?
Through friendly competition we should look to the environmental issues 10 years into our future as well as those that are visible and before us today.
