Faculty of Education, Chiba University / Asia & ASEAN Center for Educational Research
ProfessorMy main research topic is “plant genetic resources,” including landraces and their wild relatives. I have conducted field surveys and characterization of the plant genetic resources for future conservation and utilization. For the field survey, various countries have been focused on, such as India, Nepal, and Malaysia.
In recent years, I have been working in the field of education and developing model lessons focusing on plant genetic resources with foreign collaborators. As the plant genetic resources, I am focusing on the crops which are familiar in Chiba and foreign countries.
