- About PSI
Dr. Naoyuki "Yuki" Yamashita's major scientific interest concerns with exploring stellar bodies using nuclear spectroscopy to determine their elemental compositions and applying that information to lunar and planetary science.
Dr. Yamashita received his PhD in Radiation Physics in 2006 from Waseda University, Japan. He joined PSI in 2011 after two years as a postdoc fellow at IRAP/CNES, France. He participated the Kaguya (a.k.a. Selene) mission as a Co-I of the Gamma-Ray Spectrometer team. He is an associate to NASA’s Dawn Gamma Ray and Neutron Detector (GRaND) for Vesta and Ceres.
