Q What was your motivation for joining the program, and what about the program appeals to you?

The main reason is that I wanted to be in an environment where I could engage in research with friends who have the same goal and engage in friendly competition. Since I entered a graduate school with the intention of entering a doctoral program, I had a strong desire to do research in an environment where I could devote myself to it. The HWIP is the best place to discuss with people with expertise in different fields and to absorb knowledge and perspectives that I could not reach by myself.

Q What is your expertise and how do you want to develop it with the program?

When I was an undergraduate, I did research on image and signal processing. Currently, I am studying human motion generation and telexistence using a robot. Telexistence is a technology that is attracting attention from all over the world that is currently suffering from COVID-19 and can be applied to various situations such as construction sites. Through this program, we aim to deepen our understanding of sensory transmission technologies in telegraphy and to further develop our research.

Q What are your future dreams and goals?

The details have not been decided yet. This is because I am interested in a variety of fields and I believe that drawing a specific vision of my future will lead to narrowing down my possibilities. I believe that by humbly and sincerely approaching my questions and interests, I will be able to find my goals.
