Research interests

I am conducting research into forecasts into global food supply and demand under global restrictions for resources and the environment, development strategies for developing countries, and the approach to developmental cooperation. For example, I am conducting analyses of simulations using system models for the issue of water pollution, and research into forecasting changes in food production using remote sensing technology. I am analyzing the impact of global warming on the world’s agriculture and forestry industries using the development of global food and agriculture industry models employing remote sensing analysis, and creating of models and forecasts of the environmental burden based on agriculture and food consumption.

Study Example

  • Forecasts of NOx and Sox emission volume due to the population concentration in cities / Yunnan Province, China
  • Forecasting NOx emission volume by industry sector
    The significant increase in emission volumes from industries was predicted. In particular, it is an urgent task to formulate measures for improving energy efficiency and exhaust gas restrictions in industrial sectors.
