I am studying the dynamics of nutrients, especially phosphorus in ecosystems. Phosphorus is essential element for the growth of organisms, and is deeply involved in the maintenance of ecosystems, food production, and environmental problems such as eutrophication. Therefore, it is very important to clarify the phosphorus dynamics to realize a sustainable society. I am conducting the research based on field investigation, phosphate oxygen isotope analysis, and chemical analysis.
