Self-introduction
I was born in Kobe City, Japan. I've been working at Hiroshima University since October 2015. I liked drawing illustrations and had drawn many cartoons in my childhood. Feeling that the task of researcher is similar with that of a cartoonist, as both have to write carefully polished stories based on the information independently investigated and own original ideas.
