Take a look at his introductory interview below!
1. What's your main research focus at the moment?
Community ecology and climate change biology, especially in freshwater ecosystems. My lab is also trying to develop environmental DNA methods for community analysis and statistical methods and simulations for ecological analysis.
2. Can you describe your research career? Where, what, when?
I completed my PhD in 2005 at Tohoku University, Japan. I performed a JSPS post-doc in Ehime University, Japan and University of Washington, USA, then performed a JSPS post-doc for aboard in Carl-von-Ossietzky University Oldenburg, Germany from 2008 to 2011. I began a faculty position at Hiroshima University, Japan in 2011. Then, I began as Associate Professor in University of Hyogo, Japan from 2015.
3. How come you became a scientist in ecology?
As solution of global environmental issues, e.g., climate change, I have been interested in ecology. When I was ten years old, I was much influenced by TV programs for climate change issues and the books in 1987. Then, I am an ecologist with a special focus on community and food-web ecology in aquatic ecosystems. I have studied climate change biology using long-term phenological observation and sediment core analysis. More recently, I’ve been interested in environmental DNA methods for community and biogeography analysis. I have performed a variety of methods for ecological analysis including stable isotopes, environmental DNA, statistical modelling, long-term analysis, and remote sensing.
4. What do you do when you're not working?
I like trip around the world with my family.
