Dr. Nino Espinas, RIKEN
OIST Alumnus - Plant Epigenetics Unit

Hello! I’m originally from the Philippines. I graduated from University of the Philippines (BS) and continued my schooling at University of Tokyo (MS) and Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (PhD). My research interest is on plant biology especially the epigenetics of defense priming in plants. Currently, I am a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow at RIKEN-Yokohama. I love playing badminton and I also snowboard and ski during winter season. It would be nice to meet you.     

Akira Kawano, OIST PhD Student
Graduated from Kyushu University (Bachelor)

Hello everyone! I am a first year PhD student at OIST. After graduating Miyakonojyo Kosen where I have studied electrical engineering, I transferred to the department of Physics in Kyushu university. During the spring vacation of the university, I joined the research internship at OIST and studied in Mathematics, Mechanics, and Materials Unit. I found the beautiful environment in Okinawa and met energetic OIST people at that time. Then I chose OIST for my PhD. In my free time, I enjoy playing sports and the guitar. I will talk about the student life at OIST in this Café. See you soon!
