Welcome

I am currently working as a Project Researcher in Global Hydrodynamics Lab in Institute of Industrial Science, The University of Tokyo.In Global Hydrodynamics Lab, we are working on fresh water dynamics in global scale using modelling, remote sensing, and model data integration. Please visit Global Hydrodynamics Lab here.

Research Intrests

My major research intersts are in modelling water in global scale. Recenlty I have been working on data assimilation to hydrodynamic modeling using satellite altimetry data. A novel apporach has been proposed for hydrological data assimilation using a phsically based apporach. The methods developed can be used to integrate satellite altimetry observations from satellites such as Surface Water and Ocean Topograpy (SWOT) mission into hydrodynamic models. Furthermore, I am also invloved on developing CaMa-Flood hydrodynamic model for better representation of globa fresh water.
