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
