Academic discipline(s)


In general

Research topics

  • Anthropocene
  • Geoengineering
  • Sustainable development
  • Petroleum geology


The past 7-year work on petroleum geological engineering aroused me serious speculation on the meaning of humans’ intervention in the globe. I therefore turned to this domain, Philosophy of Science and Technology, as my Ph. d research, attempting to examine geo-engineering projects such as redirect Japan current and defrost the Arctic, to better reveal scientific and cultural importance of current and future projects for sustainable development.
