Research Interests:

 

In recent years, significant progress has also been made in the exploration and observation of small Solar System bodies, such as Kuiper belt objects, Asteroids, planetary rings, and satellites. The origin and evolution of these small bodies should be understood in the context of planetary system formation. We are working on various researches for the origin and evolution of planetray systems, ring-satellite systems, and small Solar System bodies such as asteroids.






Current Projects: 

  • Planet formation
  • Origin and evolution of ring-satellite systems
  • Origin and evolution of small solar system bodies
  • Physics of impacts related to the formation and evolution of planetesimals and small bodies
  • Experimental studies on granular material and their applications for physical processes of small bodies
