Research Interests
Japan is surrounded by seas, and nearly 70 percent of the earth is sea. As the globalization is developing currently, the importance of maritime transportation will be more important than ever. The evaluation of ship motions, added resistance, and speed loss in a seaway is inevitable, especially in heavy seas. There are also necessary to study on the fuel consumption and CO2 emission theoretically, and I am studying on the integration of three theories on seakeeping, machinery, and propulsion.
Message for Students
Research works needs continuous efforts everyday with little progress, but the achievement of new findings will give you a big confidence. I hope you should train to think logically and ask questions any time. I welcome you to visit my laboratory if you have any interests in my study.
