    Malaysia

    PhD student in Tokyo Institute of Technology
    (Main Coordinator of SSC Japan Alumni)

    I am currently a PhD student in the Tokyo Institute of Technology working on photodynamic therapy for cancer. I joined the Sakura Science program back in 2016 where I am fascinated by the Japanese’s cutting-edge technology and their passions to their work and duties. This had not only led me back to pursuing my research career in my current institution, but also strengthened my determination in finding out ways to build and expand the SSC community.

    PhD student in Kyoto University

    I was very inspired and decided to do research in Japan during the participation in Sakura Science Program in July 2017. I applied for MEXT fellowship for PhD and was successfully selected as MEXT fellowship 2019. I’ve been doing PhD at Kyoto University since October 2019. Back in October 2018, I made a presentation at the 1st SSC Alumni Meeting in India held at the Japanese Embassy in Delhi, when I was a masters student of Earth Sciences at IISER Kolkata.
