Bio

I worked as a resident physician in the internal medicine program at Okinawa Chubu Hospital from 2002 to 2006. Then, I moved to Okinawa Hokubu Hospital and worked for 10 years as an internist and nephrologist. I studied at the Harvard School of Public Health from 2011 to 2015 for an epidemiology MS program. Since 2016 I have been working at the Okinawa Nanbu Medical Center and Children’s Medical Center as a nephrologist, and I completed a doctorate at Osaka University in 2022. I have continued my research activities with the aim of developing such skills as longitudinal analysis, decision analysis, and marginal structure model analysis. I am grateful to all my mentors for their kind and generous support.
