Research areas: Atomic and molecular physics, Astrochemistry, Surface chemistry
I earned a doctoral degree in atomic and molecular physics from Tokyo Metropolitan
University in 1993, and worked on the photoionization processes of highly-charged
ions and molecules in gas phase using synchrotron radiation as a postdoctoral
researcher at The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN) until
1996. During 2000/2001, I was a visiting researcher at University College
London. Since becoming a permanent staff at Institute of Low Temperature
Science Hokkaido University in 1996, I have tackled surface physics and
chemistry on solid water at very low temperatures, relevant to chemical
evolution on cosmic dust.
