Q1 Why did you choose to come the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Kyushu University?

In March 2009, I graduated from the undergraduate school of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. I chose the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science in Kyushu University for two mains reasons. The first one was my interest in computers, mathematics and telecommunication. And the second one was the high level of education provided in Kyushu University.

Q2 What do you research in your major?

From April 2009, I belong to the graduate school of information science and electrical engineering. I take mainly computer science classes, Information Theory, Natural Language Processing, Algorithms and Data Structures, etc. However, I also take classes from the mathematical department, like Statistics, Mathematical Modeling, Optimization. My goal is to have a good knowledge in computer science with a strong mathematical background.
My research subject is about constructing high-resolution images from single low-resolution images. In this research, I use Machine Learning, Statistics, and Optimization tools. I think that the research is very important in the learning process. It gives the students the opportunity to develop an analytical spirit and to get in touch with some of the unsolved problems in their field.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

Before coming to Fukuoka I lived one year in Tokyo where I did an intensive Japanese course. From my own experience, I think that the student life in Fukuoka is more pleasant compared to other big cities like Tokyo. In my opinion, Fukuoka has a good balance between Big-City convenience and Small-Town Comfort.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

My Advices:
- Study Hard.
- Get a deep understanding of basic mathematics (Analysis, Linear Algebra).
- Do your best in studying Japanese and understanding the culture.
- Enjoy your student life.

Q1 Why did you choose to come the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Kyushu University?

When I was a college student, I got interested in the application of nano technology on energy and environment area. Kyushu University and the research lab that I am studying in are famous in this research field, so I chose to start my studying abroad here. The rigorous academic environment of Kyushu University is also one reason..

Q2 What do you research in your major?

I am researching on diagnosis of gas insulated switchgear (GIS) using carbon nanotube (CNT) gas sensor, which is fabricated by a new method based on electrokinetic manipulation of CNTs under positive dielectrophoresis (DEP), which traps CNTs onto the microelectrode. In the furture, I want to develop CNT gas sensor and make it practical in the electrical insulation system.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

Fukuoka is a very beautiful city and people living here are very gentle. When I came to Japan, I had a lot of troubles because the custom and lifestyle of Japan are quite different from my country and I could not communicate with others in Japanese. Thanks to kind people around, I was able to fit in the new environment in a short time.

Q4 Please advise something to younger students who come to Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering, Kyushu University.

As a foreign student, the ability of communication is necessary. Before you come here, it would be a good idea to improve your Japanese and English, and make sure you can communicate with others at least in one language. The research area of electrical engineering is wide, so if you pay some attention to related research other than your own, you may get many useful inspirations.
