Short Bio:
SATO Tomohiro is a data scientist particularly focusing on the atmospheric science such as air quality and gas emission. Satellite remote sensing is his major research approach. He obtained Doctor of Science from Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2014 March with a research of deriving global ozone isotopic ratio using the satellite remote sensing. His study received JpSAC Young Scientist Award from the Japanese Society of Atmospheric Chemistry in 2017.
