Welcome to Our Lab!

To realize a safe and secure society, we are conducting research to develop methodologies to design and implement integrated disaster risk management and governance policies. Based on information science, planning and management science and economics, we explore effective disaster risk management/governance system, especially, elucidation of interactions between disaster and socioeconomic systems, methodology enhancing effective risk communication and disaster risk governance, and information systems for participatory disaster risk reduction planning and management. We also aim at establishing an original information systems design method for integrated disaster risk management, especially by developing a spatial-temporal database as a platform of the systems. Furthermore, to build a safe and secure society, we need to put in place disaster prevention systems that will enable the planning and implementation of disaster risk control, financing, and other integrated policies in a rational manner. We will take an informational, organizational and economic approach to find out what kind of disaster prevention system will result in cities with greater resistance to natural disasters.

Current Research

In order to help you grow your researches, our lab can advise you in in the following areas:
Climate Change Adaptation Strategies
Doing researches and projects in assessing and improving community resilience and infrastructure under uncertainty, such as seawall and river gate adjustment, and inundation simulation under the impact of climate change.
Socio-Economic Mitigation of Disasters
Developing methods to estimate the short-term and long-term socio-economic impact of a disaster, to provide evidence-based decision-making supports for disaster risk reduction and implementation science of integrated disaster risk management.
Disaster Risk Communication and Governance
Risk communication is a critical point that should be considered throughout the risk governance processes as effective communication helps people to take actions to reduce risk in their everyday lives.
