About my research

I investigate the production of bio-diesel fuel from plant oils. I will try to find a post-doc position in this university after I graduate.

Research Environment

I communicate with my professor in English which helps with my potential Japanese language barriers. I have had many opportunities to work with other departments, as well as go to Germany to share my research. My professor has also introduced me to his colleagues in many different Japanese companies.

Message to other international students

The university provided me with Japanese lessons for the first 6 months I was here. This, in conjunction with the assurance that I can communicate with my professors and colleagues in a shared English language has helped me greatly in finding my place as a functioning member of my research team.
