Research overview:
Seismologists areresponsible for mitigating earthquake disasters, so precisely estimating seismic ground motions is one of our most important tasks. We are working on any problems related to this task, and our recent reseach subject are as follqw : 1) Modeling esrthquake faults and their rupture process as sources of seismic ground motions (e.g. Rupture process of the 1995 Kobe earthquake ) . 2) Exploring detailed images of underground structures, which should influence seismic ground motions (e.g. three dimensional ray tracing in a subduction zone and tomographic analysis of explosion data). 3) Numerical simulation of seismic ground motions caused by fault rupture in a three dimensional heterogeneous structure (e.g. simulation of strong ground motions caused by the 1995 Kobe earthquake).
