Message from Students

Satoru Kinoshita
M2, Graduate School of Bioagricultural Sciences
(D1, Graduate School of Science from academic year 2019)
I am currently studying plants, and I am engaged in fundamental research aimed at revealing their so-called "secret powers." Plant research in itself involves a wide range of fields, so I have rarely had the chance to think in terms of other disciplines. While I was an undergraduate and graduate student, I had several opportunities to communicate with people from different cultures and to study abroad. Outside Japan, I had the experience of getting to know my own culture while I was living in a multicultural environment. That is exactly what I expect from the GTR. I hope that I will have opportunities to think in a multidisciplinary way and discover a new area of study that I can call my own.

I am excited about the numerous opportunities offered by GTR to form solid networks with people from different areas of study as we work on interdisciplinary research. I would like to get involved in GTR activities in a responsible way, so that I can advance my own research through interdisciplinary studies and also acquire the ability to appropriately express my research and evaluate it from various perspectives. I also expect to deepen my relationship with colleagues in the GTR who share these aspirations. My hope is that we will be able to reciprocally appreciate and enhance our research activities in the future, even after we have left Nagoya University.
