Status : Prof.
Research Field : philosophy and phenomenological qualitative research.

Professor at the Graduate School of Human Sciences, Osaka University. I started my career as a researcher of French philosophy with a focus on phenomenology. I am currently conducting research mainly in the field of medicine and welfare. I am interested in the experiences of individuals in the midst of adversity, such as illness, disability, poverty, and discrimination, as well as the formation of communities and the description and analysis of socio-historical backgrounds that originate from individuals.

Research Activities

・I have been conducting research on people with developmental disabilities and listening surveys of nurses. My current research focuses on child-rearing support in impoverished areas and the deaf community.
