In my previous job, I have conducted research on livestock production, theriogenology, genetics, etc. with the theme of improving cattle productivity in hot climates. From now, in addition to the themes that have been working on, I'd like to start new research related to the relationship between microbiota and animals' productivities and diseases, using ruminal and intestinal microbiota. Reserch theme: Research on fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) technology in farm animals; Research on the relationship between microbiome, and diseases and productivity; Research on early disease detection using remote sensing technologies in farm animals; Research on stress evaluation in farm animals using biological information, such as body temperature, heartbeat, breath sounds, etc


List of current research topics

Utilization of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) technology in farm animals
Elucidation of the relationship between microbiome, disease, and productivity
Early disease detection using remote sensing in farm animals
Stress assessment in farm animals using biological information, such as body temperature, heartbeat, and breathing sounds.
