Moved to Hiroshima University

From April 1, I moved to Hiroshima University, Graduate School for International development and Cooperation, as an Assistant Professor. My research topic will be Rainfall-induced and related river and ocean disasters, especially focusing on unprecedented disasters which have occurred in July 2018 in western Japan. I am happily looking forward for the new challenges which will be coming alongside with the new position.
