Brief Introduction of Research

  • To understand the energy release process caused by the magnetic energy, I investigate the active phenomena in solar atmosphere using multi-wavelength observing data.
    Especially, I am interesting in the phenomena that are associated with jets and eruptions.
    For my research, I use the X-ray and optical data obtained by Hinode and the microwave data obtained by Nobeyama Heliograph.
    The multi-wavelength data analysis is essential for the studies of solar physics.
    Recently, I joined to ALMA project, I am working on developing the solar observations by ALMA.
