Kotaro Moriyama at Goethe Univeirsity Frankfurt


About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher of Relativistic Astrophysics at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. My research interest is the structure of the black-hole spacetime. I have been conducting researches both theoretically and observationally for the ultra high angular resolution observations with the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT).
I have been proceeding theoretical studies on the utilization of the time-domain signatures of gravitational lensing effects, such as relativistic radiation echoes, for the measurement of the black-hole spacetime, which is a key science goal of the EHT. As an active member of the EHT Collaboration, I have made substantial contributions to its core observational projects including the first-ever imaging of the supermassive black hole M87* at the radio galaxy M87. I have been playing a leading role in the on-going imaging of the supermassive black hole Sgr A* at the Galactic Center.
