I am a Cosmologist Shedding Light on the Dark Side of the Universe

I am a Designated Assistant Professor at Nagoya University and currently a Visiting Scholar at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)/California Institute of Technology. Before moving to Nagoya University, I was a Caltech Postdoctoral Scholar at JPL. Before moving to JPL, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University. I obtained Ph.D at University of Tokyo in 2012.

My research interest primarily lies in observational cosmology through weak gravitational lensing measurements using big data from large-volume galaxy surveys. I have been actively working on the Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) survey. We are now working very hard on the HSC first-year data to get science results out! I am also working on preliminary studies for upcoming galaxy surveys such as NASA's Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST).

You can find my research interests, CV, and publication list in this website.

Below is the list of my media appearance.
