- What do you think was evaluated?
- Honestly, I do not expect that I was selected as one of the winners. I was bit pessimistic because most of the students speak Japanese. Since I am still not good at Japanese, my goal was only to make students or sensei who attended my poster understand about what I did in my research by using English. Unexpectedly, I was selected. I thank to my seniors for reminding me to prepare everything for the best even though the condition is not supportive.
- Why did you choose Electrical and Electronics Engineering?
- I have had an interest with electric vehicle and renewable energy since senior high school. At that time, I thought that becoming an entrepreneur who provides efficient transportation and electricity is a cool job, which gives contribution to society. During my study in my country, my friends and I liked to do community service in rural area and village. There were several problems that occurred in those areas such as lack of electricity, water supply, and transportation. Facing that problems made me wanted to be someone who can make tools for solving their problems. Unconsciously, it drove me to learn more about electrical engineering. Finally, I got an opportunity to study electrical engineering with electric motor specialization in Tokyo Institute of Technology.
- Message to high school students and first-year college students
- After getting some experiences, I realize that it is not impossible for getting something that you want. As long as we keep moving forward and be patient, little by little, we can see our progress to reach our goals. What is more, that will be more valuable if our goals is to give benefits to others.
In the Chiba laboratory, we consider not only the oral presentation but also the importance of the poster presentation, and we are making presentations at posters with ordinary seminars. Every year we have produced winners like this and this year we won three awards. We would like to continue our efforts in the future.
