Outline Activities
 I specializes in hydraulics and conducts research on the physics and hydrosphere of coastal oceans, mechanisms of flood hazards, and their impacts on climate change, using the latest field observations and numerical simulation techniques. I also conduct joint research with biological and fisheries researchers to promote interdisciplinary research.
 In the undergraduate course, lectures on basic knowledge of hydraulics and hydraulics experiments are given, and in the graduate course, lectures on data analysis and field surveys are given to improve the skills of advanced engineers. In addition to specialized knowledge, we instruct thesis and dissertation advisors to help students acquire the value and methods of working together under diverse values through interaction with off-campus fields and researchers.
 In addition, I am making efforts to contribute to society by participating in national and prefectural committees and actively working for NPOs.
