Career

2013-pres.: JSPS Fellow. Department of Anthropology, The National Museum of Nature and Science

Reseach: I have studed wild Borneo Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus morio) in Danum Valley Conservarion Area, Sabah, Malaysia.
My topiics are;

1. Ecology of P. p. morio in the primaly forest
2. Social interaction of P. p. morio in the primaly forest
3. Realtionship between locomotion and cognitive ability
4. Reproductive strategy of P. p. morio in the primaly forest

Advisor: Researcher Reiko KONO
