Overview

Multidisciplinary approaches to strengthen vector borne disease transmission study

Vector borne disease study has been suffered due to insufficient researchers working on vectors, and is becoming incompatible with emerging infectious diseases. By introducing various new technology such as 3D printing, IoT, micro-climatorogical survey, I have been active on optimising field monitoring of mosquito activity and calling attention of researchers to join to this field of research from related fields of study.

Updating and sharing drone technology for field sciences

By develop, maintenance, utilize survey technologies applicable with drone, I have been active to introduce new types of observing and sampling ecological data which has been innaccessible to the field sciences, then expand the region of non-human-centric knowledge and findings. I have been co-organizing research group on this topic which has more than 1000 membership.
