I want to acquire a broad range of knowledge and applied skills, and enjoy my research to the full!
Q: What was your motivation for joining the program?
I was interested in research that combines neuroscience with disciplines such as information science and engineering. I was also attracted by the opportunity to gain insights from other fields and learn about working with industry partners through actual interdisciplinary research projects, all while I’m still a student.
Q: What about the program appeals to you?
There are certainly many opportunities available here, and it is up to each student to work out how best to use them. This does not mean that students are left on their own, however. I am very grateful for the willingness of faculty members to go along with students’ ideas. I think that this kind of environment really helps students to develop a clearer, sharper awareness of their research challenges.
Q: What are your future dreams and goals?
The three great revolutions to date have each changed the nature of society and human life dramatically, and today, widespread emphasis is placed on innovation. But I do not believe that every change is good just because it is called “innovation”: it is important for each individual to find problems and achieve solutions from his or her own perspective. I hope to be able to identify problems that I can tackle in depth, and find solutions to them in the future.
