Planetary exploration, Space physics

Current Research

I am interested in the dynamics of the plasma and atmosphere around planets. My approach is to analyze the data from the space born instrument. Also, I am developing the instrument on board the space mission such as Hisaki (launched in 2013) and BepiColombo (to be launched).
