A casual interaction is always a learning opportunity

I think the life of graduated school student is spending almost all the time in the laboratory, facing one’s own research theme. However, I am not suited to such a life. I like to interact with people. In particular, talking about each other’s research with people from different fields trains me to communicate my research in a way that is easy to understand and helps me to understand the characteristics of my own research. It has also inspired me to come up with new ideas. In addition, the interinationality of the members of my laboratory helped me acquire the habit of paying attention to the use of wordings and expressions, while clearly communicating my intentions. As a result, my presentations were highly evaluated, and received the People’s Choice Award at the Kyushu U 3MT competition 2022, the Second Place at the KU VISION PITCH 2022, and the Good Presentation Award at the Graduate School of Systems Life Sciences. I am delighted that I was able to convey the interestingness of my research to the judges who were not specialists in my field. I hope that you will make the most of such opportunities to interact with students from different fields and nationalities by focusing on your presentation.
