ProfessorI am conducting research to examine environmental changes occurring on the Earth’s land surface, particularly in vegetation, in response to climate change. My research involves utilizing data from Earth observation satellites and conducting computer simulations to understand the absorption and emission of greenhouse gases, such as CO2.
Recent Topics of Interest:
・Utilizing the global network of geostationary meteorological satellites, including Himawari, to monitor land surface dynamics at high frequencies, such as every 10 minutes.
・Leveraging various Earth observation datasets treated as big data and employing technologies like artificial intelligence to extract environmental variations on the Earth’s surface.
・Enhancing our understanding and forecasting abilities of Earth system processes through refinement of models using various Earth observation datasets.
Motto in Research or in Life: Let’s give it a try.
Hobby / Holiday:
I thoroughly enjoy staying active, and one of my favorite activities is inline skating. I often skate along riverbanks, covering distances of approximately 20 kilometers. Exploring the vibrant city center of Tokyo on skates is a future adventure I eagerly anticipate. Furthermore, I find immense joy and solace in the presence of my pet java sparrow at home, as its delightful nature always brings me comfort and happiness.
