This is Dr. Satoshi Inoue's Web Site. I study solar plasma physics. My primarily interests are numerical modelings of the solar coronal magnetic fields, solar storms (flares and CMEs), and nonlinear magnetohydrodynamics of the solar plasma, and also astronomical plasma. I received Ph.D. degree from Hiroshime University. After experiences of several years in Japan, Korea and Germany, I am leading Solar MHD Group at Center for Solar-Terrestrial Research (CSTR), New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT)

as an assistant professor of Physics Department. 

​If you are interested in working with me as a graduate student, please feel free to contact me ! (日本からも大学院生を受け入れてます。興味があればお気軽に井上までお問い合わせ下さい。)

Feb. 1 2022【PI Satoshi Inoue wins CAREER award】

​PI received the prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation. The team (PI, Postdoc researcher, Graduate student) engages in novel data-based MHD simulation of solar eruptions. This project started from February  1 2022 and will run for 5 years. Read more...


Dec. 12-17 2021【Participation in AGU Fall Meeting】

​Member of Solar MHD Group, Dr. Satoshi Inoue and Mr. Daiki Yamasaki participated in the AGU Fall Meeting held in New Orleans. They gave oral presentations on data-based MHD simulation of 2017 September flares and nonlinear force-free modeling. It was still pandemic, but the city seemed to be coming back to life.  

Nov. 13 2021【Visiting student stays at CSTR, NJIT for 3 mouths】

Mr. Daiki Yamasaki who is a student of Kyoto University stays at CSTR of NJIT until 20 February 2022. Daiki will work for data-based MHD simulation as member of Solar MHD Group. Welcome Daiki, we hope that you will achieve great success and enjoy in NJ! We sincerely thank for Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) for their support of his stay.

【Research published from ApJ 】(June 20 2021)

Our latest paper has been published from The Astrophysical Journal. By using an MHD simulation, we investigated three-dimensional dynamics of the magnetic field during the successive X-flares(X2.2 and X9.3) which were observed in September 6th 2017. We successfully produced the eruption associated with the X9.3 flare, starting with the magnetic field before the X2.2 flare.
