I'm an astronomer in Division of Theoretical Astronomy, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ). I'm working on explosive and transient phenomena in the Universe by theoretical and observational approach. My research interest includes following topics.

  • supernovae
  • neutron star mergers (light curve data are available here)
  • radiative transfer
  • transient survey
  • time domain astronomy
  • multi-wavelength astronomy
  • polarimetry and spectropolarimetry
For more details, see my CV.
