Research Interests

I theoretically study formation and evolution of planetary atmospheres. My current targets are Earth, Mars, and extrasolar planets. I also adopt comparisons between my theoretical predictions and results of observations, explorations, and experiments through collaborations with researchers from other scientific disciplines. These studies on planetary surface environments are crucial to understand the origin of life on the Earth and origins of life on other planets.
