Institute for Advanced Academic Research / Center for Environmental Remote Sensing, Chiba University
Professor My laboratory is pursuing environmental prediction research, with a focus on various Earth environmental phenomena such as meteorological and hydrological events. I strive to advance the boundaries of this field by integrating Earth observation satellites and employing diverse prediction methods. Specifically, I am committed to enhancing and refining weather forecasts for extended periods of several weeks, and gaining a comprehensive understanding of the long-term impact of climate change on the water resource environment over a century.
To achieve my prediction refinement goals, I employ numerical simulations powered by state-of-the-art supercomputers and harness the potential of machine learning techniques. I will facilitate the fusion of forecast and observation data through statistical mathematics, including data assimilation. My ambition is to pioneer a groundbreaking environmental prediction science by conducting interdisciplinary research that spans earth science, computational science, and statistical mathematics.
