I am a physician-scientist specializing causal modeling in chronic disease epidemiology. I received an M.D. from the University of Tokyo in 2013, and received Ph.D. in Epidemiology at UCLA in 2021 after working as an endocrinologist. My long-term career goal is to reduce the global health burden of chronic diseases (e.g., diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, thyroid disorders, and cardiovascular disease, etc). I aim to develop strong methodologic skills in epidemiology/statistics (particularly, causal inference and machine learning), and leverage them to build evidence for future clinical management and policy interventions related to chronic diseases.
