Profile

Ph.D. in Environmental Analytical Chemistry from Kanazawa University. Speciation of potentially toxic elements, including the radioisotopes, in waste matrices and their selective removal is the focus point of my current research.

Main Focus of Research

·Study the fate and behavior of environmental pollutants, including radioisotopes, in the biosphere ·Design of low energy and low burden environmental remediation technology ·Implementation of sustainable management practices for radioactive wastes

Fields of Research

Radiochemistry, Environmental remediation, Waste management

Keywords

Selective separation, Molecular Recognition Technology, Biodegradable chelators, Soil humic matter, Rare metals, Long-lived radionuclides, Fukushima

Research Overview

Fate, transport, and removal of arsenic in natural waters and decontamination of the remediation waste were the topics of research during the early-life of my scientific career. The point of emphasis later includes the study of other potentially toxic elements, such as lead, cadmium, and varying matrices. I also worked to design methodologies for the cost-effective recovery of rare metals, e.g., indium, from waste resources. The research focus is expanded to study the behavior of long-lived radionuclides in the biosphere and to develop eco-friendly and cost-effective approaches to remediate the waste from the decontamination activity after the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant accident on March 11, 2011.
