Since arrived at Chiba Univ., 1998, my study centers in soilborne plant pathogens and related diseases. Major academic fields are plant pathology, ecology of soilborne pathogens, and soil microbiology. My research interests are to understand relationships between soilborne pathogens and plants in soil, thereby elucidating factors involved in disease progress and epidemics. The overall goals are to establish theories and measures of the adaptive control of soilborne pathogens.
