Otokura, Mari

Graduate of Osaka University, School of Engineering Science

I want to expand interdisciplinary research on organisms and information networks.

Q: What was your motivation for joining the program?

The professor in my lab introduced me to the program and encouraged me to consider applying. Initially I didn’t know whether or not to take my professor’s advice, but I had long been interested in interdisciplinary research, and I also realized what a difference the program’s financial support would make to me, so I decided to apply.

Q: What are your future dreams and goals?

I hope to have a career as a researcher. I expect that the knowledge and experiences I acquire in this program will enable me to expand interdisciplinary research on organisms and information networks.

Q: What about the program appeals to you?

I value the opportunity to expand my horizons through access to knowledge from outside my own area of specialization. Also, I find my own motivation is enhanced through contact with the other highly-motivated people in the program. These kinds of experiences have an extremely positive impact on me personally.
