Using the high-resolution ice-lake coupled model, my study focuses on the ice-lake processes in the Great Lakes in conjunction with climate change. I have completed my Ph.D. at the University of Tokyo, with a numerical study of the ice-ocean coupled processes in the Sea of Okhotsk. During my first postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University, I started a process study of the ice bands, which is a small-scale (~10^0km) coupled process in the ice edge. Recently, I have enhanced (parallelized) my ice-ocean model for the further intensive studies of ice-water coupling processes. I am interested in understanding these processes, including dynamics of polynya and ice edge, using the numerical model as well as theoretical ideas.
