My Areas of Research

Aiming to create urban spaces where people can live safely and comfortably

The aim of my research is to create urban spaces where people can live safely and comfortably. My research activities are grouped into three main themes: the creation of safe and comfortable urban space, for which I provide assistance to communities in preparing for disasters, making evacuation plans and securing children’s safety on the way to and back from school; and the creation of people-friendly communities, for which I assist in planning a barrier-free street network that considers the elderly and disabled people, help ensure transportation services for daily activities in disadvantaged areas; and regional landscape formation.

My Teaching Philosophy

In learning and research, I emphasize the independence to seek out challenges, investigate them and solve problems, along with a sociable nature to work in cooperation with the regional community. My students and graduates acquire advanced, specialized knowledge and techniques in urban, transportation and disaster planning and are able to contribute to the regional and international communities.
