What attracted you to choose Kyoto University as a place to study?

Kyoto University is the one of the top university in the world. I can do the high quality research in Kyoto University more over. I am very much interested to do my doctoral studies under Prof, Kazutoshi Mori in the field of unfolded protein response.


In what way did you adjust yourself to Japanese culture?

Language is the only thing I am facing little problem in Japan. I started to interact more Japanese people to learn the language. I don’t have any restriction in food, so I can eat Japanese foods and for me it’s delicious and healthy. Japanese culture is very liberal so I don’t have to do any adjustment to learn the culture.
