Introduction of Speakers

Yuuki Murota

When I was a student, I was fascinated by physics, especially the mysteries of phenomena in the extreme environment of the universe, and I entered the Department of Physics at the Faculty of Science. Later, I chose to work as a government official instead of a researcher, supporting research environments and researchers in general, but the knowledge I gained at the Faculty of Science and the experiences I had as a student still form the core of my thinking. I hope to introduce my own experiences and provide useful topics for your future career choices.

Masako Takasu

After receiving my Ph.D. in physics, I have worked in Universities and Institutes. Currently, I am working with members of a laboratory in the School of Life Sciences to conduct computer-based research on proteins, biomembranes, and soft matter as they relate to drugs and disease. I would also like to talk about the considerations I took into account when deciding on my field of specialization, what I am glad I went to the Faculty of Science, job hunting, and what you should do while you are in high school.
