Dr. Junko Ogawa, Staff Scientist





Ms.Kayoko Ikeda, Research Unit Administrator

I am originally from the heart of Tokyo, spent a few years in Canada and moved to Okinawa - my lifetime dream island in 2011.

Coming from a non-scientific background, being a part of OIST was no small challenge for me, but striving to become a competent RUA to enable our wonderful lab members to focus on their efficient and productive research activities is nothing but fun. And I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of the brand new Pao Unit!

Out of work, I'm obsessed with traveling and listening to vinyl records. Used to dance hiphop for over 10years and still can’t live without black music.
