“People can’t live without food.” It was those words, spoken by my grandfather, which triggered my desire to become a researcher. Food problems are tangled up with a complex web of other issues, so we need to exercise interdisciplinary problem-solving skills and formulate multifaceted measures to improve the situation. Focusing on the damage caused by insect pests to crops and livestock, I visit production sites within Japan and overseas, exploring the path to stable food production through the development of insect pest control techniques. I hope that you’ll tap into the interdisciplinary problem-solving skills cultivated by this school to play an active role in the local and international community as individuals capable of awakening yourselves, swaying others, and moving society forward.
