I received a B.S. in biology from Cornell University and worked as a research technician for two years at the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute of Medical Science. I researched molecular signaling pathways that promote axon regeneration in retinal neurons. I am currently interested in factors that regulate neurodegeneration and how these diseases can be treated. I believe that researching the simple nervous system of C. elegans may provide some clues to understand the complex interactions that occur between different cell-types during neurodegeneration.

I joined OIST as a Research Administrator in March 2013 with the role to provide administrative support to the research unit. It’s great to be a part of this group.
I am from Chiba Prefecture where surrounded by the ocean and happy to live in Okinawa where you can feel much more beautiful ocean every day closer.
