Research Interests
All members in my laboratory are going to clarify the phenomena with generation and propagation of shock waves and apply that to various outstanding problems in the field of maritime sciences. Each research has been carried out experimentally, numerically or analytically. Recently, in particular, the studies on interaction between microbubbles and underwater shock waves and generating procedure of underwater shock waves are continued for establishment of sterilization treatment technology of ship ballast water.
Message for Students
During your student days, you can do and learn whatever you want. I am looking forward to seeing you with your curiosity about my research field.
