I can’t say that I always knew I’d be a planetary scientist, but being full of wonder from a child, I got the chance to be engaged in academic activities.

My general research interests are in learning about the origin and evolution of planets. I’m also interested in the ecological system and environment on terrestrial planets.
I use a variety of numerical and analytic methods to examine how the surface environment of planets have been produced, evolved, and been stabilized. Then, I wish I compare these theoretical examinations to observations with telescope.
