Toshiya Ueta

  • Research Interests

    • Dr. Ueta is an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. His research interests include

       

      (1) stellar evolution: particularly looking into the late stages of evolution from the Red Giant to the Planetary Nebula phases involving mass loss processes

      (2) astropaleontology: investigation into the history of stellar mass loss by observing the circumstellar gas/dust distribution

      (3) astromineralogy: study of the composition and formation of circumstellar and interstellar matter, especially dust grains

      (4) radiative transfer in dusty media

      (5) observations of circumstellar phenomena using optical, infrared, sub-mm, and radio

      (6) interactions between stellar winds and the interstellar medium

      He is an active user of various space-based and ground-based observatories around the world.  Recently, he has been involved in international consortia using the latest infrared telescopes such as Spitzer (US), AKARI (Japan) and Herschel (Europe).

      There are always some research opportunities for students.  If you are interested in any of these topics and related ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me!
