Profile 【 display / non-display

  • I am interested in the formation of the academic research system in modern Japan, and in particular, academic research funding.

    How was the current research environment created, and where is it headed? What is the true promotion of academic research, and how is it to be done? I would like to unravel these questions historically (vertical axis) and relative to the world (horizontal axis). This will also lead to the significance of humanities and social sciences research today.

    At the same time, I have been involved in research management in all fields at universities and research funding organizations.

    I will continue to pursue "academic research" from both theoretical and practical perspectives to produce the academic infrastructure of the present and future.

    A historical study in search of the source of career education; Frank Parsons established a vocational bureau in Boston, U.S., at the beginning of the 20th century, and used the term "vocational guidance" to describe a program to help young people choose career paths based on their characteristics and to promote their personal happiness and contribution to society. The thesis gives an overview of Parsons' philosophy, its roots, and its social significance.
