Research Field

  • Supernovae, High energy astrophysics


  • Physics, University of Tokyo

Summary of Research

  • Core-collapse supernovae are the huge explosion of the massive stars at their death.
    Their explosion mechanism is not sufficiently understood. Though the neutrino heating is the most plausible scenario, numerical simulations cannot reproduce their property that is obtained by observations. I am investigating what is missing in our simulation.
