Researcher Q & A
Where are you from?
Tamana, Kumamoto, Japan
Why did you become a researcher?
I was attracted by various forms and modes of life through watching David Attenborough’s “Life on Earth” (BBC). I just wanted to know how the diversity was formed.
What is your favorite experiment, theory, device, reagent, lab equipment? Why do you like it?
I like experiments using stem cells or early embryos. I like to watch their growth and shapes changing.
What is your hobby?
I love motorcycle touring and playing bass guitar. Both have rhythms and heavy bass sounds, which makes me feeling good without particular reason.
