■Message from researcher
Agriculture and Rural Development in Southeast Asia (Myanmar)
 I am interested in agricultural ecology and rural development. Main research sites are in Southeast Asia, especially in Myanmar. I study dynamics of human-nature interaction under recent changes of social and natural environments, and I try to contribute toward sustainable agriculture and appropriate development for local people.
