Brief Introduction of Research

  • Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) are powered by accretion matter onto a supermassive black hole. While the mass accretion is a key process to control AGN’s activity, it is poorly understood. I am promoting observational approaches to quest the origin of accretion matter and the mechanism to transfer angular momentum. Radio interferometry offers high-resolution imaging capability for this study. As a system verification scientist of ALMA, I am also developing methods to improve accuracy and efficiency of radio interferometry.
