I am originally from Tokyo, Japan where I received my Bachelor's degree in Applied Chemistry from Keio University. Since then I moved to the U.S. to pursue my graduate degree and recently completed a Ph.D in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of California, Davis. During my time at UC Davis, I served as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses including Introduction to Engineering, Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering and Materials Characterization Techniques which are closely related to subjects such as Chemistry, Physics and Thermodynamics. As a fluent Japanese speaker, I also have experience tutoring English to a Japanese elementary school student.
