Dr. Shintaro Kono
Dr. Shintaro Kono is an expert in leisure behaviour science and an assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology, Sport and Recreation at the University of Alberta, Canada.
"Research suggests that leisure is the life domain that can make our lives worth living. Yet, many of us do not know how to make most out of it. And that's the knowledge that I would like to produce and teach."
Dr Kono's research aims to understand how people experience leisure, and more importantly why they live the leisure life that they have. This involves studying what constrains or motivates people's leisure experience, and what outcomes people derive from their leisure. Kono also explores how different and similar people's leisure experience is across different cultures.
