    I am a psychologist with a PhD in human sciences at the Waseda University. My primary research interests lie in the field of vulnerability and maintenance factors of depression, especially depressive rumination. My current works are focused on 1) development and validation of rumination measures, 2) investigation about how rumination interacts with other cognitive behavioral factors, and emotional and somatic states, and 3) specifying which factor prolongs rumination.
