After graduating from the Department of Physics at Meiji University in 2007, Dr. Inami went on to study at the Graduate University for Advanced Studies, majoring in space science. While there, she was also a visiting graduate student at the California Institute of Technology, where she started her adventure of investigating dusty infrared galaxies. After obtaining her Ph.D., she moved on to be a postdoctoral researcher at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory in the USA and then the French National Centre for Scientific Research. She thereafter took up her present position of Assistant Professor at the Hiroshima Astrophysical Science Center in 2019 and spends her days working on the enigmas of space.

Assistant Professor Inami studies infrared galaxies that shine brightly in infrared light as the name implies. These galaxies are also known as ‘cradles of stars’ because the reason they are bright in the infrared is due to active star formation. Newly born stars in galaxies are surrounded by cosmic dust that absorbs intense emission from these stars and re-emits it in the infrared. Dr. Inami is exploring the mechanism of star formation and the history of the universe by looking in detail at infrared galaxies across cosmic time.
