Major Field of Concentration
Environmental Risks and its Management, Environmental Law, Chemical Management Policy, Waste Management Policy
Research
After taking Ph. D, I was involved in the field of chemical management policy through work on amendments on the Chemical Substances Control Law and the PRTR Act. During deliberations on the bills, I conducted research on how to incorporate international risk management policy in Japanese chemical risk management policy, still continuing research in this area. At the same time, I was keen on the importance of capacity-building of Asian Waste Management Policy. When thinking of Japanese Environmental Waste Management Policy, we could not forget the idea that Japan is the part of the ASEAN Region. This point of view I believe sharing information about ASEAN Environmental Risk and sharing Japan's successes experience how we overcome serious environmental pollution will be useful. I want to be continuing more detail research on this area.
