Self-introduction
specializes in exercise physiology, using physiological methods to analyze biological responses and adaptive responses of the body during exercise and environmental stress. I am a member of the "research project on prevention of heat stroke during sports activities, special committee on sports medicine and science" of the japan institute of sports science, and a researcher of the "tokyo olympics special project" of the national sports science center. I am the author of "science of recovery, nap (2014)", "body temperature II, nap (2010)", "heat prevention guidebook for athletes, national sports science center (2017)", "heat stroke prevention guidebook during sports activities, public Interest japan sports association (2019)". heat prevention at sports fields, nap (2021). etc. the keywords in the research are heat stroke prevention, heat protection, body cooling, body temperature regulation, and sports performance. in related fields, i commentary has appeared in newspapers, tv, and magazines.
