Self-introduction
I joined the International Center (renamed as Morito Institute of Global Higher Education in October 2018) at Hiroshima University in April, 2017. My primary role here is to serve as the Education and Exchange Coordinator for the PEACE Student Exchange Program, a bilateral student exchange program. I coordinate between the Schools/Graduate Schools at HU and their counterparts at our partner universities as well as provide various supports to our Japanese students and international students. Academically, I am interested in quality assurance in higher education, and doing research on the psychological measurement of the effects of study abroad.
