Research Subject

Measuring Expansion of the Universe with SNIa and galaxy distributions Studying galaxy formation and evolution

Current Research

My main research activities are observational Atronomy with optical wide-field cameras and with a multi-band simultaneous imager. The activities include measurement of the expansion of the universe to constrain mysterious dark energy with type Ia supernovae, found with wide field cameras (mainly Suprime-Cam at Subaru telescope), followed with large ground-based telescopes and the Hubble space telescope through international collaborations. Variable objects including AGN, supernova, and variable stars are also targets for observational studies using wide-field optical imaging. Quantifying galaxy morphology is also another research activities.
