Research Field

Seismology, Earthquake source physics, Glaciology, Hydrology

Current Research

Based on traditional seismology to study earthquake source physics by analyzing seismic waves, I want to understand seismology, volcanology, and tectonics comprehensively. I am also interested in seismic imaging of the Earth’s interior, various natural phenomena that radiate seismic waves including glaciers and landslides, and sociological topics related to earthquakes. So far, I have been working on the following topics:
- Volcanic deep long-period earthquakes
- Slow earthquakes on plate interfaces
- Glacier seismology
- Automatic earthquake detection (earthquake early warning) and realtime seismic monitoring
