[3] My Research Field

            By Dr. Takumi Hayashida, IISEE Research Seismologist

It has been almost one year since I was assigned as a staff member of IISEE. I am currently engaged in research on strong motion seismology that estimates subsurface seismic velocity structures for the accurate prediction of long-period ground motions.
