Research Interests:

  How the Earth, as a water planet, formed and evolved is one of fundamental questions in the earth and planetary sciences. Our approach to this question is from various viewpoints using wide range of methods and techniques including field investigations, microtextural observations, chemical analyses, reproduction experiments, etc. We are interested in formation processes of solid materials in the solar nebula, and the origin and evolutionary processes of the meteorite parent bodies (asteroids and comets).


Current Projects: 

  • Evolution of the water terrestrial planets
  • Formation process of the continental crust
  • Geochemical evolution of the solid Earth
  • Magmatism of giant caldera
  • Development of large magnitude explosive eruption database
  • Improvements of advection-diffusion model for volcanic plumes
  • Microtextural observations of carbonaceous chondrites
  • Improvents of X-ray/electron diffraction tecniques
