Profile

I am studying fluid dynamics of oceans, playing vital roles in earth climate sytem, based primarily on field and numerical experiments. In graduate school, I am trying to develop students abilities (especially in geophysics) so that they can be a good researcher or make good jobs in future. I am very happy if oceanography in Kyoto and Japan promotes further by these activities.
