Q1 Why did you choose to come the Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering, Graduate school of Engineering, Kyushu University?

During the preparation of the application, I make clear my future focus on the research of water environment. From the understandings of different schools, I am very interested in the study of Environmental Fluid Mechanics research center in Kyushu University. Besides, Kyushu has long history and brilliant culture, which will surely make my oversea experience more meaningful. As a result, I choose to come to the Engineering of Kyushu University.

Q2 What do you research in your major?

Now I am studying river environment especially in the effect of the instream flow change on growth of attached algae.
I intend to evaluate the influence of instream flow change on hydraulic situation and riverine ecosystem, and I am trying to find the appropriate flow regime. I am planning to apply this result and knowledge to evaluate the ecological impact of flow conditions and also to build dam outflow river maintenance.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

Japan is very beautiful and romantic country, and Fukuoka is a treasure city with beautiful scenery and pleasant climate. Especially, I have impressed by SAKURA, which is Japanese word of cherry blossom, in spring season. I also experienced its livability and the passion of Fukuoka people, when I first come to Fukuoka.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Civil Engineering Course, Department of Earth Resources, Marine and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

The oversea experience is very colorful, and a great exercise for myself. I am sure it will be a valuable treasure for me in the future.
I have to see more of the outside world, communicate with others sincerely when I am young. And that will make my life more meaningful.

Q1 Why did you choose to come the Department of Maritime Engineering, Graduate school of Engineering, Kyushu University?

As the reason that I choose to come this faculty, firstly the Kyushu university is famous; secondly I like the marine; finally in engineering, it's filled with innovation and challenges, I am glad to meet them. That's all.

Q2 What do you research in your major?

I have been studying on dynamic problems of offshore structure, particularly the fluid-structure interaction. In future, as the increasing with the development of marine resources and the utilization of marine space, the status of offshore structure and marine machine become more and more important, so I want to make contributions for that.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

As the hard episode, when I just came to Japan, I can't speak Japanese and no friends in Japan, so I had felt lonely and helplessly. But before I came to Japan, I had the belief that I do have a good study trip in Japan, I can't give up so easily. Then I try hard to study Japanese through school or a part-time, TV etc. Gradually I loved to speak Japanese and found that living in Fukuoka is comfortable, just like the kindness people, the delicious food, the convenient transportation etc.
As a foreign student, it's easy to find a part-time in university or others, and in the university, it has perfect student support systems, so it reassure me to study.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Naval Architecture and Marine Systems Engineering Course, Department of Earth Resources, Marine and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

Have a image that the university is a small social unit, and in Marine Systems Engineering Of Kyushu University which looks like a family unit. Please get along great with your family members.
Come to our faculty , you do like the marine. So ‘good good study and day day up', it will improve your ability, meanwhile you will have the duty to make good use of marine and protect marine for peoples and the earth.

Q1 Why did you choose to come the Department of Earth Resources Engineering, Graduate school of Engineering, Kyushu University?

I began by looking for Postgraduate positions in my chosen field. I was interested in studying Epithermal Geology, a research field well established in Japan. I was interested in researching epithermal mineralogy of the Nansatsu District, Kagoshima, southern Kyushu. I found many references to alumni and staff in my related field at Kyushu University. I applied directly to Associate Prof. Akira Imai and he gave me instructions on how to formalise my application to the Engineering Department.

Q2 What do you research in your major?

The main focus of my research is mineralisation and isotopic behaviour of the boundary conditions observed below the high-sulphidation epithermal deposit at Kasuga mine. My interest lies in how the generation of metallic deposits is formed by hydrothermal activity and deep-seated magmatic activity. In a wider field, I would like to consider the implications of my current study to the associated mineralisations in the Nansatsu district, and the modern day hydrothermal activity observed.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

For much of my field work, I spend time in and around Makurazaki in Southern Kyushu. It is an interesting part of Japan, very much unique it's character. Local people are very polite and welcoming, and there is very relaxed attitude to life. I find the dialect of Southern Kyushu is very challenging to understand for a non-native speaker of Japanese. However, it definitely adds to the fun of living here.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Earth System Engineering Course, Department of Earth Resources, Marine and Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

I think it is important to consider seriously what it is you wish to study. It is always the ultimate goal of any academic study to have some significant contribution to your chosen field, so considering it wisely is paramount. This of course, must be balanced with what you find enjoyable. A research topic that you find enjoyable will always make your student days much more fun and worth while. I also find a good group of friends to work and relax with, make Kyushu University an excellent place to study at.
