Biography
I grew up in Ibaraki, Japan and Texas, the United States. Before coming to GPSS, I was at the University of Washington where I spent my undergraduate and master's life. My academic background is in Engineering. My work experience includes an internship at a paper manufacturing company, and a technical staff at National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Tsukuba, Ibaraki.

Outside of school, I love yoga, jogging, reading, participating in educational outreach activities, and most importantly eating food from all around the world.
