Professor
Affiliation Graduate School of Integrated Sciences for Life
Discipline Bioresource/Food Sciences
Academic Degrees Nagoya University Doctor of Agriculture
Kobe University Master of Agriculture
Research Fields Agricultural sciences; Agricultural chemistry; Plant nutrition / Soil science
Research Keywords Salt Tolerance / Environmental Stress / Plant Nutrition / Plant Growth Promoting Bacteria / Plant-bacteria interaction / Biofilm
Comments Our research focuses on molecular physiological analysis of environmental stress tolerance in higher plants for sustainable crop production. To improve crop productivity under various environmental stresses, particularly high salinity and nutrients deficiency, we are running a couple of projects for screening useful varieties from divergent landrace collections of rice and forage crops, isolation of determinant genes for environmental stress tolerance from wild plant species, and genetic engineering of environmental stress tolerance. We also study plant growth promoting bacteria to increase crop production through improving bacterial fitness in the rhizosphere.
