Research Interests

I am passionate about reducing damage caused by earthquakes, because I was born in Japan where earthquake directly impacts on people's lives.
My research uses statistical and computational methods to identify patterns from large seismic data to obtain insights on seismic activities. After experiencing the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, I analyzed the time series data sets to uncover spatiotemporal characteristics of aftershocks in Kyoto University.
Currently, I am trying to relocate hypocenters in the United States using double difference earthquake location algorithm with Prof. Ishii.
