About Me

I am an associate professor at Department of Earth and Planetary Science, Graduate School of Science, the Univesity of Tokyo. Please refer the list of of publicaions on Google Scholar or in CV (PDF, including list of publications) for details of my research activity.

Research Area

  • Space Physics
  • Plasma Astrophysics

Research Interests

I am interested in theoretical aspects of space and astrophysical plasma phenomena. My major research interests include physics of collisionless shocks (both non-relativistic and relativistic regimes), high-energy particle acceleration and transport, linear and nonlinear theory for kinetic plasma instabilities, and numerical techniques for advanced kinetic/fluid plasma simulations.
