Dr Hiroshi Kawase works at the Coastal Branch of the Natural History Museum and Institute, Chiba, Japan.

During his two month visit to Sydney he conducted research as a visiting scientist under a bilateral agreement from the Australian Academy of Science and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.

His research has focused on the behaviour of several species of local leatherjackets. He has made many scuba dives to observe their natural behaviour.

During his visit to the Australian Museum in March 2004, Dr Kawase examined leatherjacket specimens held in the Fish Collection.
