Research Interest

Research Field Isotope Ecology
Research Summary I am involved in the pursuit of research and methodological advancements with the aim of evaluating the transfer of substances through living organisms and the intricate networks of ecosystems. More specifically, my research is centered on organisms that traverse between diverse ecosystems, such as salmon and birds, organisms that mediate connections between ecosystems, such as brown bears and wolves, and long-distance migratory organisms such as skipjack tuna. In order to gauge the interconnections in the food chain and to track the movement of marine organisms that are not easily observable, my research primarily employs the technique of isotope analysis.
