Research

Toshiya is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, in the Relativity and Gravitation research group. He is working on data-driven cosmology, the intersection between theoretical and observational cosmology. His current interests include B-mode analysis, gravitational lensing of CMB, cosmic birefringence, reionization and non-Gaussianity. He is an active member of several CMB experiments.
