Currently, he is a professor at Osaka Gakuin University, and has been working on nuclear many-body theory and nuclear astrophysics. He has been investigating self-consistent QHD approximations in terms of Landau’s Fermi-liquid theory and density functional theory (DFT), while applying QHD nonlinear effective models and approximations to neutron star calculations. He revealed that nonlinear mean-field approximation method for nuclear matter is equivalent to Hartree approximation and suggested the importance of self-consistent approximation method beyond mean-field approximations.
