My Areas of Research

The theoretical study of partial differential equations and mathematical models

Partial differential equations are at the heart of a variety of natural phenomena and physical phenomena, and understanding them from their theoretical aspects is essential. My research involves the theoretical study of reaction-diffusion equations (a type of non-linear parabolic partial differential equation), which have a particularly deep connection to mathematical biology and physiology. I use numerical simulations in an effort to analyze the stability and asymptotical behavior of solutions with special properties, such as stationary solutions and traveling waves, and understand the dynamics of interface phenomena.

My Teaching Philosophy

To study mathematics, an attitude of thorough thinking is important, even if progress is slow. I welcome students with an interest in theoretical study based on analysis (calculus, which has broad implications for study at university) and the theoretical clarification of natural phenomena and physical phenomena.
