I am a researcher of science communication and public policy. I am interested in how science maintains to be highly trusted by society, how it can develop in harmony, and how academia should fulfill their responsibility to society. In particular, I am interested in the following three studies::

1.Patronage of basic science (crowdfunding, etc.)
2. Mega and big science policy and communication (ILC, TMT, SK etc.)
3. Science and gender (low proportion of female students in physics and mechanical engineering)
