Message to students

地震と火山に関する研究は学習するべき多くを備えた魅惑的な研究フィールドです。地震・火山の研究におけるモデリングとモニタリングの両方の能力が非常に改善した最近の数十年間である一方、これらの自然現象についての私たちの理解はいまだ制限されています。我々の目の前にはまだまだたくさんの課題が山積していますが、同時に科学的発見をかきたてる側面もあります。私たちの研究成果は自然災害に関連した被害・損害を評価し減らすことを支援することができるものです。筑波大学での地球物理学の研究に興味のある学生の皆様、ご遠慮なくご連絡ください。歓迎します。

The physical processes responsible for the occurrence of large earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are a fascinating research subject. Much remains to be learned about these complex phenomena and how we can assess and reduce their associated risk. With its unique observational data, Japan is the ideal place to conduct research on earthquakes and volcanoes. I invite students interested in studying on such topics at Kyoto University to contact me.

Research

主な科学的関心は、地震の発生を制御するような物理現象を理解し、地震のリスクをよりよく評価する方法を見つけることで、現在、地震および非火山性微動の誘発の様々な局面についての研究を行なっています。また地殻における地震波特性の時間的変化の研究および詳細な地下速度構造のマッピングにも強く興味を持っています。私は、日本はもちろんのこと、アメリカ、フランス、ドイツ、スイスおよびルーマニアの、各国の大学・研究所の研究グループとも協力しています。

My main scientific goal is to understand the physical processes that control the occurence of earthquakes and find ways to better assess and reduce the earthquake risk. I am particularly interested in analysing the stress interactions between earthquakes and constructing physically-based models that can be used in forecasting seismicity. I am currently involved in research on various aspects of earthquake and non-volcanic tremor triggering, either due to static and/or dynamic stress changes. In addition, I have a strong interest in the high-resolution mapping of the underground velocity structure and its temporal variations.
