I want to make humanoid robots more accessible.

Q: What was your motivation for joining the program?

Q: What are your future dreams and goals?

I want to continue researching how to make humanoid robots more accessible. I want to further develop my research and management skills and carry out meaningful research with many different people.

Q: What about the program appeals to you?

I really enjoy being able to hold discussions with researchers in other fields and gaining unexpected insights and ideas.

Q: What do you think of the program’s difficulty level?

When holding discussions with international students, I feel my language abilities fall short. However, I enjoy how we all make efforts to listen to one another, which really stimulates our research efforts.
