Message
Starting from molecular biology and genomics on soil amoeba, I am traveling on the journey of academic curiosity. I am currently working on behavior of Japanese enterprises on Africa, Japanese contents business such as manga, anime and video games and application of Sci-Fi thinking and manga production methodology to the project-based learning. Although I do not have a mandate to supervise students, I am willing to collaborate on related research topics.
