6. Research Interests:
  • Seismotectonics in the southwest Japan:
    • Why do the megathrust earthquakes along the Nankai trough occur closely in time?
    • What geometry does the subducting Philippine Sea slab show?
    • Are there any relationships among slab geometry, slab-related seismicity and non-volcanic tremor activity?
    • What is the cause of structural heterogeneity (or anomaly) within the crust and the uppermost mantle?

  • Improvement of receiver function analysis method:
    • How to detect velocity interface(s) beneath thick sediments?
    • How to evaluate anisotropic feature around velocity interface(s)?

    And other seismological features observed by NIED Hi-net / F-net.
