I am in general interested in faults and earthquake mechanics. I try to understand how faults form from intact rocks, how they slip prior to, during and after earthquakes.
I use an experimental approach, mainly tri-axial cells equipped with acoustic emission recording system, but I also used the high velocity friction machines in Kyoto University and Hiroshima University. I also do some theoretical and numerical calculations to explain with physical arguments what I see (or expect to see) in the laboratory or in nature.
