Health science, Analytic chemistry

My research subject is health disorders caused by excess and/or deficiency of biological essential elements.  I also have studied the behavior of rare earth elements widely used in industrial fields, using experimental animals.  Intake, distribution, time-dependent change and their biological effects were different depending on the element, their chemical forms and exposure routes.  I consider effective health education in classes using some simple experiments and topics of recent problems concerning nutrition and environmental health.

Field of Specialization
Christian theology, Catholic theology

Speaking of Syria today, it is an area where there are many refugees in the civil war situation, destruction of cultural heritage by Muslim countries and genocide of minority residents.  However, this area was a place where the proprietary Christian culture using Syrian language flourished, which is one of the Aramaic dialects that Jesus and the apostles were supposed to have spoken before the rise of Islam.  My research topic is to elucidate the ideological characteristics of authors who wrote works in Syrian language.  Despite its historical and thought-historical importance, Syrian-Christian literature is little known in our country.  I aim to fill up the scholarly gap.

"Social studies to think"
I research what kind of classes are necessary in order for children to "think".  In those classes it is necessary to have such things as interesting talks, to present the actual things, DVDs, and effective questions after a sufficient research of the teaching materials.  The evaluation would be based on how much meanings the class gives to each child.  All of these activities of teachers will lead to "plan strategies of questions”.

With regard to Japanese oral management ability measurement based on ACTFL-OPI, I am interested in "reaction of listeners", especially "ability to listen and speak" such as "cooperative utterance" in language learners, Can-do-statements and Japanese language acquisition of Korean learners.  In addition, I am also researching on training of students' ability of Japanese teacher training courses.

Field of Specialization
Philosophy of education

What is the significance of learning at universities?  How are universities involved with society?  What are the differences among vocational schools, preparation schools and universities?  I am thinking about the significance of existence of universities from the viewpoints of "classics" and "liberal arts".
