AppealMy interest lies in actively transforming to a sustainable society through exchange across boundaries of disciplines, cultures, and skills. It has led me to work, study and live at different places, organization and with all kinds of people. In 2017 I received my Ph.D. in Environmental Management from Kyoto University and currently I work as a FEAST project researcher at RIHN looking into organic markets, bee-keeping, and (urban) gardening.
