Self-introduction
The Earth is a water planet. The water has a great influence not only on the evolution of life but also on the evolution of the Earth. I am conducting research focusing on the effects of water on deep Earth materials. My research fields are deep Earth geophysics and ultra-high pressure Earth science.
