This is a website of Shinji Nakaoka, who is a bio-mathematician working in the field of theoretical microbial ecology. My major approach is to apply methods and theories of complexity science to identify causal mechanisms of dysbiosis, referred to as reduced microbial species composition. My biological interest is to understand association between the collapse of systems as indicated by reduced biodiversity of resident bacterial species with several inflammatory diseases.
