Laboratory Address

Graduate School of Science and Engineering, University of Toyama, Gofuku 3190, Toyama, 930-8555, JAPAN

Research Fields, Keywords

Environmental Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Water Treatment, Bioelectrochemistry, Humic Chemistry


Interested in the development of new analytical methods and sensors using electrochemical techniques. Besides that, I have also achieved a number of water treatment methods for organic pollutants. Currently, I am working on the the interaction between organic pollutants and humic substances, which is one of the most ubiquitous natural organic compounds present in water environments.
