I work as an associate professor of Yamagata University from 2004.
I worked at the Aichi Sangyo junior college as a full-time lecturer in 2002 to 2003.
I specialized in information education and the information society theory.
I’m currently undertaking the following research projects;
"Surveillance study on the effective information sharing system relating to child safety" sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. This project promotes initiatives to prevent crimes by conveying the movement of a child’s mind and real-time GPS, a system that tracks children’s activities to parents, through the use of a mind map.
"Research to contribute to the correction of disparities of information literacy in Higher Education" sponsored by the Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research. In this project, the study surveys the relationships between the disparities of information literacy in higher education and the family backgrounds, lifestyles, favorite subjects, etc; and
"Research on the relationship between the Information Technology and the NEET (young people Not in Education, Employment or Training), job-hopping part-timers, and truant children and students" sponsored by the Mitsubishi Foundation Research Grants. In this project, the study examines the relationship between job orientation and the family backgrounds, lifestyles, favorite subjects, etc.
I obtained B.A. and M.A. degrees at the department of Education of the Tokyo Gakugei University and completed the doctoral course at the Graduate School of International Telecommunication, Waseda University.
