Action research on the process of disaster recovery and revitalization
Since 2013, I have been conducting disaster reduction education in Atsuma town, Hokkaido. In 2018, Atsuma town was damaged by the 2018 Eastern Iburi Earthquake, and therefore I have been involved in town office, volunteer center and residents support immediately after the earthquake.

Disaster reduction education and mental care
I am involved in the development of educational material “Sasuke-nable” for evacuation shelter operation, which was created based on the cases of the Great East Japan Earthquake, the practice of education, and the training of facilitators.
I also develop and conduct "disaster reduction education and mental care" programs.

Disaster culture
A variety of disaster cultures are formed in the affected areas such as earthquakes, tsunamis, eruptions, and floods. I investigate disaster culture in various regions in Japan and compare the origins and contents, through literature research and fieldwork.
