|Research interest||My current research focuses on;
(1) characterization of archaeological material based on instrumental analyses such as electron probe microanalyzer and laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer.
(2) geology, petrology and geochronology of Antarctica and Central Asia (e.g. Mongolia and Russia) for understanding the crustal processes during continental growth.
