Brief Message

The theme of my education and research is, “Collaborative Communication”. This describes when people work together collaboratively with other people in order to learn together.

Though people who live in the community have a variety of different backgrounds and thoughts, what is important for living safely and in a constructive way? How do you resolve problems which arise between people? I believe the key to this problem is the collaboration of people.

I want to actively create places in the community and within the university where people of foreign nationalities (international students) and Japanese people can collaborate together.
