1.Name: Tatsuhiko SAITO

2.Research fields: Seismology

Tatsuhiko Saito received Ph. D. at the Tohoku University, Japan in 2003, where he studied scattering theories for applications to and interpretations of high-frequency seismograms. After the graduation, as postdoc researcher, he continued to work on the investigation of seismic-wave propagation through heterogeneous earth at AIST, and extended his research interests to seismic and tsunami generation using high-performance computing techniques on supercomputers at the University of Tokyo. He then moved to the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED) in 2010 and has been working there as senior researcher. After the 2011 Tohoku-Oki great earthquake, the NIED has started a new observational project, which plans to deploy more than 150 online seismic/tsunami sensors off the Pacific coast of eastern Japan to detect the tsunami generation inside the focal area in real time. He is currently engaged in a basic research for earthquake and tsunami.
