ph.D in Economics from the Graduate School of Economics, Kobe University.


After working as a lecturer at the Faculty of Economics, Hokusei Gakuen University, and current position in 2006. My areas of expertise are environmental economics and econometrics. My research theme is "Research on measures to promote the reduction of household waste by introducing economic incentives." I have been involved in the proposal and promotion of in-store collection of PET bottles and 2R promotion measures in retail stores. I had participated in a project by JICA, Hachioji City, and Soka University to support waste reduction measures in Chuuk State, Federated States of Micronesia. Since 2018 summer, I had been involved in support activities in Chuuk State with students until 2019.

In addition to my area of expertise, I am also involved in local volunteer activities. Together with my students, I set up the "Hachioji Children's Kodomo-shokudou" (Cafeteria). I am also a staff member of "Atsugi Enpitsu no Kai (Voluntary evening class at junior high school)," that supports the learning of those who could not learn enough during their compulsory education.

I have written a book titled "Koko, Aidaimasuyo - Creating a Disponible Place" about my continuous practice of creating a place for children, people with disabilities, and children with connections to foreign countries with her students. I have also written "Fukushima wo Aruku", a book about my one-year fieldwork with students in Fukushima. In March 2021, I and my students wrote "Under the COVID19-Disaster," which documents their experience of the COVID19-disaster.

I am a member of the Society for Environmental Studies, the Society for Environmental Economics and Policy Studies, the Japan Society for Basic Education and Literacy, and the Japan Society of Island Studies.
