Research Interests
  • My main research focus is the process of interest development. From around 1990, the phenomenon called swing away from science emerged, but why it has emerged has still remained unsolved.
    Through an interdisciplinary approach involving educational psychology, environmental psychology, and evolutionary psychology, I am aiming to solve this unanswered question.
