Research Field

Marine Geology and Geophysics (Reflection Seismology)

Current Research

My scientific interest is comprehensive understanding on trench-arc-backarc basin systems on Earth. I focus on marine geologic and geophysical studies in the plate convergent margin such as Nankai Trough, mainly through 2-D and 3-D multichannel seismic (MCS) reflection investigations. I am currently doing 2-D and 3-D prestack depth imaging studies and physical property estimation along the Nankai subduction zone.
