Research Interests:

I am interested in data assimilation systems, especially for meso-convective systems at storm scale (~10 km). To predict local heavy rainfall events, we need advanced observation systems, numerical models, and data assimilation systems. In addition, it is neccessary to investigate mechanisms of meso-convective systems. All of these topic are range of my study.
