My name is Masanori Saito. I am a Ph.D. student in Tohoku University and also a research fellow in Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). My research interests are variation of cloud and aerosol optical/microphysical properties and development of remote sensing techniques to infered those properties from satellite-based measurement or ground-based passive imager, and simulation of sky color and optical phenomena in nature. Currently, I am staying Texas A&M University as a visiting student.
