Comments As a faculty member of the Graduate School of Human and Social Sciences, Hiroshima University, I'm engaging in education and research in Human Geography. I also serve as an academic mentor in the Taoyaka Program for creating a flexible, enduring, peaceful society. Currently, I'm conducting three research projects:
1. Research on industrialization and labor markets in India
2. Geographical research on the transition to a knowledge-based economy
3. Research on the globalization of the automobile industry.
I have particularly focused on the first project as the director of the Center for Contemporary India Studies at Hiroshima University and as a representative of the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B) from FY 2019 to FY 2022. Based on those research outcomes, I'm educating a wide range of human geography, with a focus on economic geography, urban geography, and geography of India. My students tend to be interested in industrial, commercial, and service industries, and urban and industrial areas. I also encourage my students to improve their independence and creativity.
