Profile

I am a researcher of Meteorological Research Institute in Tsukuba, Japan. I received my PhD in physical oceanography from the Kyoto University in 2008. My research interests are coastal ocean dynamics such as coastal currents, turbulent mixing processes, and tides. Currently, I focus on developing a high-resolution Japanese coastal ocean model for operational monitoring and forecasting by Japanese Meteorological Agency.
