As a Researcher at National Institute of Advanced Industries Science and Technology (AIST), Japan:

Marine pollution is tightly linked with urbanizations. Iron is produced in accordance with increased population’s demand. Slag (13 million ton per year in Japan), the by-product, has been largely used recently as a road making material or filling material instead of dumping. But no attempts have been taken to apply slag as remediation materials for aquatic environmental pollution. Slag materials which can release inorganic nutrients may provide suitable substrate for the growth of benthic microalgae which ultimately influence higher trophic animals feeding on them. Therefore, my researches involved finding scientific ways for the remediation of coastal water pollution. I targeted the benthic microalgae and reuse of iron making slag for the development of a polluted seaport (Osaka and Kobe sea port, Japan) restoration technology using 13C and 15N stable isotope.   There have been a large number of studies that use diatom in marine sediments to infer past environmental changes in different regions. A number of paleo-environmental studies have associated changes in diatom concentrations or diatom compositional shifts with changes in environmental changes (nutrient enrichment, temperature and habitat preference). However, long records of such environmental variability that may entail the future management strategies through ecosystem functioning are lacking in most regions particularly in the Osaka Bay known as one of the most polluted areas in Japan. Therefore, I carried out intensive research on fossil planktonic assemblages and ecosystem shift; A-50 year record of the Seaport area of the Seto Inland Sea, Japan to predict the future management strategies for the policy makers.            In addition to the above researches, I was involved in other professional activities also.
