I have taught master’s degree students by sharing my fieldwork experience and the research results at the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Waseda University under my supervisors’ courses and seminars. From 2013 to 2015, I taught several Introduction to International Development classes at Tokyo Tech. In addition, I assisted in the Reading seminars, Research skills seminars, and General meeting seminars of the Abe laboratory. From 2018 to 2020, I taught several graduate-level classes, such as Environment and Energy Business Practical Lecture, Environment and Energy Engineering A: Seminar and Practice, with Professor Onoda.
I mainly instruct and facilitate classes in English and offer personal advice in Japanese. I also give on-the-field training to students by taking them to my fieldwork in Japan and abroad during my time at both universities.
On the field, I taught my students how to design and conduct a survey, hold participatory workshops, and conduct interviews. The field areas include a car recycling factory in Saitama, off-grid islands in the Philippines, urban settlements, and unelectrified villages in Indonesia and Myanmar.
I also have taught a class in a joint course, Global Urban Transitions: Processes and Outcomes, with Osaka University and Tsukuba University, and delivered invited lectures at Asia Pacific University, Jilin University (China), Gadjah Mada University (Indonesia), University of Indonesia, and Lambung Mangkurat University (Indonesia) in the topic of clean technologies.
Right now, I mainly work with doctoral students. I guide them in designing their research, publishing, and constructing their doctoral thesis.
