Introduction of Speakers

Ayaka Shoda

I loved planetariums, and spent my childhood with a keen interest in the beginning of the universe and black holes, and went straight into space research when I was a student. After that, I realized that "making things is fun, too," and changed careers. Even today, I still have problems, but the axis of thinking in Science that I learned at the Faculty of Science always supports me. In my lecture, I would like to introduce my experiences as both a university researcher and a corporate researcher, and talk about how what I learned at university has been utilized in my life today.


D. in 2015 from the Department of Physics at The University of Tokyo. Since then, he has worked on the development of the gravitational wave telescope KAGRA as a JSPS Research Fellow PD and Project Assistant Professor at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ). Since 2020, he has been working as a researcher at XTIA Corporation (XTIA), where he is involved in the development of laser-based measurement instruments, etc.


Fumi Egusa

We live in a spiral galaxy. This is because the Milky Way Galaxy, where our solar system is located, is considered to be a spiral galaxy. And there are many other spiral galaxies in the universe besides the Milky Way. I will introduce the latest results on how such spiral galaxies were formed and what is happening in them. I will also talk about how I came to study spiral galaxies.


D. in 2008 from the Department of Astronomy, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo. D. in Science. After working as a Research Scientist at California Institute of Technology, Research Scientist at JAXA Institute of Space and Astronautical Science, and Project Assistant Professor at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, I have been an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Astronomy, Graduate School of Science, The University of Tokyo since 2018. 2023-present.
