Faculty of Horticulture / Research Institute of Disaster Medicine, Chiba University
ProfessorI am researching the role of landscape in enhancing the interaction between human activities and the natural environment. Specifically, I am exploring how landscape can shape this relationship in urban spaces, preserve green spaces in development projects, and contribute to land-use strategies that mitigate the impact of natural disasters. Ultimately, I aim to improve the connection between human activities and the natural environment through innovative landscape initiative approach aspects.
Recent Topics of Interest:
I am interested in green space policy and land use management, river basin flood control, resident consensus buildings, and landscape governance. Specifically, I am examining new disaster prevention and post-disaster planning approach in response to the high incidence of disasters associated with climate change in recent years. Additionally, I am also exploring the issue of gender in spatial planning.
