While at IIASA, Katsumasa worked on an inverse estimation of the global carbon cycle, atmospheric chemistry, and climate system. He was particularly interested in climate sensitivity and its learning aspect to get an insight into the uncertainty in future climate projections.
Tanaka received his PhD in Meteorology, 2007, from the International Max Planck Institute for Earth Systems Modelling (IMPRS-ESM, Hamburg, Germany).
