Professor Hobara Yasuhide, PhD 

Professor Yasuhide Hobara joined the Department of Communication Engineering and Informatics, Graduate School of Informatics and Engineering in The University of Electro-Communications (UEC) in 2009. Following his graduation from the UEC in 1997, he worked at various different educational and research institutes such as Institute of Applied Physics Russian Academy of Sciences in Nizhny Novgorod, Earth observation research center, JAXA, Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie de l’Environnement et de l’Eespace Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (France), Swedish institute of space physics (Sweden), The university of Sheffield (United Kingdom), and Tsuyama National College of Technology (Japan). Terrestrial and space electromagnetic environment is his main field of research such as space plasma physics, seismo-electromagnetics, atmospheric electricity from ground-based and satellite measurements. Currently he engages in both experimental and theoretical research projects to understand the physical mechanisms of Lithosphere-Atmosphere-Ionosphere Coupling (LAIC) including seismo-ionospheric perturbations by operating the UEC VLF observation network, FDTD numerical computations to simulate electromagnetic wave propagations. He research will contribute to monitor and predict the Earth environment and mitigate the natural disasters. He is a head of the Center for Space Science and Radio Engineering, Earth Environment Research Station, Research station on seismo-electromagnetics in UEC.
