Q1 Why did you choose to come the Applied Chemistry Course, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Kyushu University?

It has a great balance between Academic Excellency and exciting Campus Life. Along with world-renowned Research Centers and Institutes, one can find circles and clubs for all kind of hobbies and activities. So, as International Student one can 'make great friends while learning Advanced Science and Technology from leading experts in the field.

Q2 What do you study in your subject?

Our research group in the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Engineering specializes in Nanobio and Quantum Chemistry, helping to predict both the nature and function of new chemical compounds and materials. I've been doing research in a novel ruthenium catalyst important for the design of more environmentally friendly, more sustainable products and industrial processes. I hope to learn a lot from my studies in Japan and go back to my country to become a scientific leader, either in industry or academia. Hopefully, both.

Q3 How do you like Japan, Kyushu or Fukuoka?

I like very much Fukuoka, and it's been a wonderful experience to study in Japan for me. I had no only the chance to learn an exciting new field in one of the best 150 universities in the world, but I also learned the culture, language and manners of a very interesting country.
Being far away from your family, long-time friends and culture is not easy and there are times when one feels like can't take it anymore, but hobbies and good friends can help a lot through those difficult times.

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

I would advice to make the most of your studies in Japan, both academically and personally. Four years may seem a long time, but they are not. In the last two years of my studies I'd been so busy, I'm longing for my first and second years in university when I had time to make new friends and practice my hobbies. Try to balance your academic and personal life and please learn that there's enough time for everything if you use well your time.

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.
