Research theme and outline

Study toward the regulation of hazardous compounds in the life environment

My research is to analyze hazardous components in tobacco smoke and to conduct the survey study for revision of tobacco package design having warning messages for the adverse health effects. These studies aim for the contribution to the tobacco regulation with prevention from adverse effects of tobacco smoke, according to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). I am also conducting research toward the improvement of life environment, from the perspective of chemical components in indoor pollutants, which is well recognized as causal substances of sick building syndrome.
