Appointment of new faculty member

Assistant Professor Nao TAKASHINA  joined our department on September 16, 2020.


My name is Nao Takashina, and I just joined the department as an assistant professor two weeks ago.
After completing my doctoral study at Kyushu University, I spent some time at the University of Queensland,
the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, and the University of Bergen as a postdoc.
I’m a theoretical ecologist, and mostly interested in ecosystem conservation, natural resource management, and decision making associated with these. Also, I’ve been working on theoretical development for ecosystem monitoring by drones or citizen scientists, and I look forward to applying it to a field.
I’m looking forward to working with you in the department and you’re welcome to arrange a meeting for your research, concern, etc. or just drop by my office (Rm 724).
