Specialization/Discipline

Agriculture and Rural Development, Area Studies (Southeast Asia, Myanmar)

Research Topic

I am interested in agriculture and rural development. Main research sites are in Southeast Asia, especially in Myanmar. I study dynamics of human-nature interaction under recent changes of social and natural environments, and I try to contribute toward sustainable agriculture and appropriate development for local people.

Message for Applicants

I try to support graduate students to achieve their challenges in research as possible. And, I hope they devote themselves to research in 2 (or more) years. In an Advanced Seminar, a weekly seminar, we discuss topics related to research theme of each student.
