Biographical Brief

He was received his M.Eng. and D.Eng. degrees in aeronautical engineering from the School of Engineering of the University of Tokyo in 1985 and 1993. After working as a researcher at the Institute of Computational Fluid Dynamics and at the Institute of Mathematical Science in Kao Corporation, he joined the faculty of Ibaraki University in 1996. He was also a contract researcher of the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science from 1986 till 1988, and a joint research fellow of the National Institute of Polar Research (Inter-university Research Institute Corporation Research Organization of Information and Systems) from 1996 till 2009.
