Other activities JpGU SAR session convener (2017 - )
RSSJ JpGU Committee (2018 - )
Research projects SAR meteorology (InSAR as a tool for mapping atmospheric water vapor). Developing atmospheric noise correction method for InSAR. Mobility-related research (MaaS).
Guidelines for advisees My lab has interests in natural disaster, especially using satellite geodetic techniques such as Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). Also I am interested in meteorological application of such geodetic techniques. If you are interested in that field, do not hegitate to contact me.
