Research Interests

My research interest is “active tectonics”. I use paleoseismological-archaeoseismological methods and instrumental measurement technologies (e.g. LIDAR active remote sensing system) for investigate the active faults and earthquake characteristics. In addition, I am also interested in the investigation of crustal deformation controlled by volcanism and faulting with filling (e.g. carbonates) analysis in fracture systems. I am familiar with geochronological methods such as radiocarbon, uranium series, thermoluminescence, cosmogenic etc. in the dating of crustal deformation.
