My current interests are below.
1) Social Determinants of Health (SDH)
2) Clinical Epidemiology
3) Health policy

My career:

Briefly, I received MD from Tohoku university ( in Japan in 2006, and finished the residency of internal medicine in Teine Keijinkai Hospital (TKH), Sapporo, Japan.


(I love Sapporo, it's very good place to live in and to visit!)

Through my experience as a physician there, I realized the importance of epidemiology and preventive medicine, and have become interested in social determinants of health (SDH) (I did not know the word "social epi." or "SDH" at that time), then I moved to PhD in medicine at Tohoku university.
(In Japan, there are few schools of public health, and public health is included in medicine. So, MDs who would like to learn public health generally go to PhD in medicine.)

Through my PhD program I studied public health in general epidemiology and conducted research on cancer epidemiology
After I finished the PhD program, I became an Assistant Professor at Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry, and have joined in JAGES project as well as Iwanuma project.

Between Aug 2013 and Sep 2015, I worked with Professor Ichiro Kawachi especially on Iwanuma project, and published several papers. After that, I came back to Japan, and work as an Assistant Professor at Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry.
