Introduction of Research
Using geodetic data, especially GPS (GNSS, Global Navigation Satellite System), I measure precise crustal deformation in and around Japan. Analyzing this data, I am trying to understand the mechanism of seismological and volcanological phenomena.
I have studied about estimation of the plate motion and uplift induced by the post-glacial rebound in Antarctica, evaluation of fault coupling status on active faults in inland Japan, modeling of coseismic and postseismic deformation and its mechanism assuming heterogeneous rheological subsurface structure, crustal deformation monitoring around active volcanoes, and so on.
Now I am interested in the relationship between slow slip event and seismic activity in inland, the effect of postseismic phenomenon after the 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake in wide area including Asian continent, crustal deformation around eastern Hokkaido, and the status of crustal deformation field around the Kurile Trench, where will be generate large interpolate earthquake in the future.
I often go field work to obtain original geodetic data to investigate detailed crustal deformation. GNSS observation network in northern Hokkaido is for slow slip event detection, and eastern Hokkaido for monitoring volcanic activity will give me new knowledges. International research collaboration is also important for me. I sometimes go to Nepal to construct GNSS observation network and Kamchatka for volcano research.

|Academic degree||Doctor of Science|
My original home town is Kagoshima, but I have lived in Shikoku, Tokai and Tohoku regions so far. My hobby is seeing GEONET sites and taking photographs. I like finding and trying something new through field works.
