Hello World.  What's going on, chemically speaking? 


Definitely a whole lot, the majority of which we don't see. It's this unseen part that drives me; I work on new spectroscopy methods and applications that let us see the nano-world in ways faster and more detailed than ever before. 

Currently I am a graduate student at the University of Tokyo and a member of Goda-lab. My career goal is to complete a PhD and become a professor and researcher.


I was born and raised in Northern-Northern California, and have lived in Japan for 12 years. 日本語も話せます。

I like hiking up snowy mountains.
