 People are constantly threatened by health crises all over the planet. Disasters, on the other hand, occur suddenly and interact with unresolved health crises. The damage varies greatly depending on the society, time of year, and time of the people.

Disaster mitigation for human security" is an attempt to look at this issue as broadly as possible, to find solutions, and to give back to society.

How can "care" be involved in this?" This is the goal of my research.
 My research focuses on the need for various types of social care and risk communication, and I am working with domestic and international organizations and researchers across disciplines to develop information systems for self-care and primary health care for disaster mitigation, and to conduct field research in Kochi Prefecture and Southeast Asian countries. We are also working on the development of a disaster risk monitoring model through repeated field simulations in Kochi Prefecture and Southeast Asian countries.
We are collaborating with companies and government agencies in order to return this research to society as quickly as possible.
