I'm studying stellar magnetic activities especially "superflares" on solar-type (G-type) stars and cooler K,M-type stars, using the various photometric and spectroscopic data from space and ground telescopes (e.g., Kepler, TESS, NICER, APO3.5m).

Through these observational studies, I try to investigate how frequently superflares occur on G,K,M-type stars, how large superflare events occur in the stellar atmosphere (photosphere - choromosphere - corona), and how planets (exoplanets) are affected from these superflares.
