Biography:

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Gravitation and the Cosmos in the group of Kohta Murase.

I am also a member of the Auger group at Penn State, led by Stephane Coutu and Miguel Mostafá, and of the Astrophysical Multi-messenger Observatory Network (AMON) team.

My research focuses on the phenomenology of the most violent astrophysical accelerators, which accelerate cosmic rays, neutrinos, and gamma-rays to extremely high energies. For more details about my research, please see my personal webpage.
