Yuji Hirai



My academic interest has been in bridging technology development and sustainable social development with project-based research.

With that interest, I have been exploring different fields such as a maintenance method for repairing the cracked concrete structure analyzing the relation between electricity consumption and university activities.

In June 2017, I joined Yamaguchi-Takada laboratory. As a member of Mongolia research team, I have committed myself to research and project activities.

Being a part of our laboratory’s long-term collaboration with the Mongolian education sector, I am trying my best to make a practical contribution to basic education in Mongolia and academic contribution to the international development field.
