先生は、先まで見通して質問してくる。

Q プログラムに応募した動機は?

高専を卒業後、阪大工学部に編入。入学時から、博士課程まで学ぼうと決めていました。

大学院の試験が終わったときに「ヒューマンウェアイノベーション」の話を知り、いいチャンスだと思って参加しました。

Q 将来の夢・目標は?

企業に就職し、国外で働きたい。経験を積んでいつか再び日本に戻り、大学などで若い人たちをサポートするのもいいな、と夢を描いています。

Q プログラムの印象・感想は?

最初に自分の研究を紹介した時は「生命系の人が多い中で、興味をもってもらえるだろうか」と心配でした。ところが始まってみると、活発に議論が進み、気がつくと発表時間が過ぎていました。本当によい経験でした。

印象に残ったのは「先生は先を見通して質問してくる」ということ。自分にそこまでの見通しがなくて、答えられないと、先生同士で「この研究はこう使える、こう発展させては?」などと議論が始まります。なるほどと納得させられる議論でした。その分野のトップで活躍している先生方は、皆どこか共通点があると感じています。モチベーションが高く、自分の研究を深く進めていく一方で、周りの分野を理解しようと努力し、その理解も早い方たちです。だから本質的なアドバイスとなるのでしょう。[:en]

My professors lead me to the answer through their questions.

Q: What was your motivation for joining the program?

After graduating from a technical college, I transferred into Osaka University’s School of Engineering. Since enrolling, I’ve decided to pursue a doctoral degree.

I joined the Humanware Innovation program once I learned of it after completing my graduate school exams. I think this program will be a great opportunity for me.

Q: What are your future dreams and goals?

First I would like to be employed at a corporation and work abroad. After gaining experience there, I would return to Japan and support young learners at a university or other institution.

Q: What about the program appeals to you?

When I first presented my own research, I was worried whether so many biology students would be interested in what I had to say. However, soon after I began, a lively discussion developed, and the time limit for my presentation had passed before I knew it. That was a great experience.

One impression I have of the program is how my professors led me to find a course of action through their questioning. I couldn’t see as far ahead as they could, and when I couldn’t answer their inquiries, they proceeded to discuss how my research could be applied or further developed. Discussions with my professors were very insightful and convincing. They are at the forefronts of their respective fields, and they always seem to find ways to bring our disparate research together. The professors themselves are highly motivated and pursue their own research intently while trying to understand as much as they can of the other fields around them as soon as the information becomes available. This is why the guidance they provide is such an essential part of this program.[:]
