I did an internship at World Health Organization while studying at New York Medical College, and earned a master's degree in Public Health. I was engaged in public health research at National Institute for Environmental Studies and NASA Ames Research Center, CHAART while studying at Kobe University, and received a doctoral degree of medical science. I had worked as a full-time lecturer and an associate professor at Shibaura Institute of Technology before I became a professor here at Sophia University.

Introduction of Prof. Anno's Research

I specialize in public health, environmental health, and spatial information science. Anno Laboratory is committed to making a contribution to research aimed at solving problems in environmental hygiene and public health by applying technologies of GIS, remote sensing, and deep learning

What can students learn from taking Prof. Anno's courses?

Students will acquire the knowledge and skills, such as public health, environmental health, spatial analysis in GIS, analysis of remote sensing image data, deep learning useful for any sort of work.

Research Seminar Synopsis

Hold a seminar once a week. This seminar provides students with the academic, communication, and critical thinking skills needed to conduct research in the field of environmental health. Students will be required to read research articles and prepare for the discussion on the reading. Also, students will learn the principle and applications of GIS/remote sensing/deep learning.

Message

The framework of my study is comprised of a mixture of public health, environmental health, spatial information science, and earth science with a common vision: to solve real problems in environmental hygiene and public health by using technologies of GIS, remote sensing, and deep learning.
