Research Themes
We could not prevent the damage from spreading caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, which took place on March 11, 2011, despite the recent developments of globalscale realtime observational networks and largescale numerical simulations based on highperformance computing.
In order to save as many human lives as possible from future great earthquakes, we are dedicating to accumulate comprehensive knowledge through integration of observation and simulation data related to earthquakes, tsunamis and seismic hazards based on statistical methodologies such as data assimilation.
1. Data Assimilation
Data assimilation is a computational technique to integrate numerical simulation models and observational/experimental data based on Bayesian statistics. Data assimilation provides simulation models that are possible to predict the future, sequentially estimating parameters involved in the simulation models and state vectors at every time step. Data assimilation was originally developed in meteorology and oceanology; for example, the weather forecasting absolutely shows results of data assimilation. We develop data assimilation techniques for the solid Earth science to investigate earthquakes and tsunamis.
2. Sequential Bayesian Filters and FourDimensional Variational Method
In data assimilation, an appropriate method is to be selected from various types of sequential Bayesian filters or fourdimensional variational method (4DVar) to compare predictions obtained by numerical simulations and observational data, considering the purpose and computational cost. We have been developing new algorithms of sequential Bayesian filters and 4DVar that are suitable for practical problems in the solid Earth science.

Research Themes
I am investigating theory and applications of nonlinear time series analysis, which is time series analysis

time series analysis for such purposes, and apply the methods to solve the real world problems by
understanding, predicting and/or controlling the underlying dynamics.
