My Areas of Research

Using a geophysical exploration method to understand below-ground conditions that are invisible from the surface

The safety of ground structures such as buildings and bridges and underground structures such as tunnels largely depends on the properties of the ground. For this reason, it is important to understand the properties of the ground in order for people to live safe and fulfilling lives. In this context, my research aims to understand below-ground views and conditions, which are invisible from the surface, using a geophysical exploration method. I also conduct questionnaire surveys on earthquake intensities with individual residents to obtain detailed information on intensity distributions within a certain area following a large earthquake in order to estimate the degree of earthquake hazard, including where and how ground shaking occurs.

My Teaching Philosophy

I want to nurture students who are not only equipped with specialized knowledge but can apply it, but also have the skills to be able to continue learning all their lives.
