Satoshi IDE
Seismology, Earthquake Source Physics
ide [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
By analyzing observational data of various earthquakes ranging from huge earthquakes to minor ones, I work to clarify dynamic rupture process of earthquakes and structural heterogeneity around seismic sources, and estimate friction and fracture conditions that control rupture process.
Simon WALLIS
Tectonics, structural petrology
swallis [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
My work combines a range of different techniques in structural geology and petrology to understand how subduction zones and domains of continental collision develop.
Kazuhito OZAWA

ozawa [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
地球惑星物質に記録されている鉱物、珪酸塩メルト、ガス間での相転移や分配等の反応を支配する平衡・非平衡過程(カイネティクス)を読み解き、現象の支配過程に時間軸を入れることにより地球と惑星の熱と水を含む物質の進化ダイナミクスを明らかにしようとしている。
Kei HIROSE
High-pressure geoscience, Study of deep Earth materials
kei [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
We study 1) structure, property, and dynamics of the Earth’s interior and 2) the formation and evolution of our planet, based on ultrahigh pressure and temperature experiments using laser-heated diamond-anvil cell.

Associate Professor

Ryosuke ANDO
Earthquake Source Physics, Seismotectonics
ando [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
We often uses numerical modeling and simulations to describe observed phenomena with underlying basic elements. We have been recently successful in development of a simple model that can describe a wide variety of slow earthquake phenomena.
Tsuyoshi IIZUKA
地球惑星化学
iizuka [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
固体地球惑星がどのようにして現在の姿に至ったか,その進化を地質学(フィールドワーク)・年代学・地球化学を用いて調べています。特に、次のような研究テーマに取り組んでいます。「大陸地殻の起源と成長史」「初期地球進化」「惑星の集積及び化学分化」「微量元素及び同位体分析法の開発」
Kenji KAWAI
Global seismology, Study of Earth’s deep interior
kenji [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
How is the Earth’s interior? How has the Earth evolved? In order to answer these questions we study the Earth’s deep interior. Analyzing observed seismic waveforms on the surface, we infer seismological structure (three-dimensional perturbation of density and seismic velocity) in the Earth.

Lecturer

Hidemi TANAKA
Structural Geology
tanaka [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
Dynamic, static, and physicochemical processes of the materials in the fault fracture zone are believed to occur according to the elementary step of earthquake generation. Our group aims to understand the elementary step of earthquake generation by outdoor activities and experiments.

Assistant Professor

Computer simulations of low-viscosity Earth-type dynamos. Origins of geomagnetic field time variations.
Keisuke NISHIDA
High-pressure Earth science
nishidak [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
We create planetary interiors artificially by using high pressure and high temperature apparatus to reveal the structure, phenomenon, and evolution process of the planets.

Project Associate Professor


Ryosuke SINMYO
Materials science of the Earth’s interior.
sinmyo [at] eps.s.u-tokyo.ac.jp
My aim is to understand the structure and evolution of the whole solid Earth. I’m studying the physical and chemical properties of the materials in the Earth’s deep interior by using experimental methods.
