Outline Activities
As a faculty member of the Research Museum, in accordance with the mission of the museum, I collect materials, build databases of materials, hold various exhibitions and events, and disseminate the results of Kyushu University's education and research.In recent years, it has been especially working to convert research materials into 3D format, and has been publishing and disseminating 3D data so that research can be promoted even in the event of a global pandemic and movement restrictions. In education, the department is in charge of courses related to museum curator qualification (museum education ), and is training personnel with an understanding of academic materials and museums. My main research focuses on human skeletal remains from the Jomon to Early Modern periods in Japan, with the aim of clarifying how the disparity developed. The main method is musculoskeletal stress markers (MSMs). Other studies include analysis of skulls using 3D data and reexamination of the regional nature of Yayoi period traits.
