Biosketch

I joined the group in August 2018. My research interests include numerical modeling and satellite meteorology. During my master’s study at the University of Tokyo, I studied mechanisms of disturbances developed on the Baiu frontal zone using a regional weather forecast model. I also have work experience in satellite data assimilation at an operational weather prediction center. I am currently working on an evaluation of microphysical parameterization schemes using A-train data.
