Research field : Theoretical Cosmology
My research interests focus on cosmology and its connection to fundamental physics. Recent developments in observational experiments have revealed phenomenological aspects of cosmology in an impressive way. In particular they strongly suggest the new paradigms such as cosmic inflation, dark matter and dark energy. Fundamental physics such as particle physics and string theory will play a crucial role in clarifying the mechanism of these phenomena. At the same time, the experimental data obtained from the ongoing and coming observational experiments will provide a new probe for particles and gravity at the microscopic scale. By focusing on such a connection, I would like to contribute to deepening our understanding and developing the fundamental theory of the universe.
