  • 専門分野 / Field |Computer Algebra, Algebraic Graph theory
  • 担当職務 / Main Duties|FGL Program

In my research I am developing efficient algorithms that solve computational problems arising in algebra. To measure the efficiency, the computational complexity of the algorithms is analyzed, before being finally implemented in a software. I also use computers in the "research development" stage, where it plays the role of "experiments". In relation to this, I am also interested in Cryptography and Algebraic Graph theory. Naturally, I like to use math software to teach mathematics! I have been in Japan for quite long, and I have travelled to many places. I would be happy to help in any way Japanese students willing to go abroad or foreign students looking for advice about living in Japan!

日本とアメリカの大学で国際教育交流業務に従事しながら、大学の国際化の課題について、研究してきました。グローバル化・多様化が進む社会において、大学はどう発展していくのか、国際的な学生・教育交流を促進する教育システムはどうあるべきなのか、また文化的学術的背景の異なる学生間でどのように学習を促すことができるのか。こうした課題を大学の現場で学生の皆さんと考えていきたいと思っています。

Over the past ten years I have been researching issues related to the internationalization of higher education. I am interested in how universities are evolving as globalization and cultural diversity are increasingly influencing many aspects of higher education institutions. More specifically, my research looks at how higher education systems can promote international education and student exchange, and how faculty can facilitate and maximize intercultural learning among students with diverse cultural and academic backgrounds. My research is also influenced by the practical work I have done engaging in international education exchange duties at universities in Japan and the United States. I am looking forward to exploring these issues further and learning with the students here at Tohoku University.

海外留学は、異なる文化の中で生活することを通じ、当たり前と思っていた価値観や考え方を再考し、視野を広げることのできる貴重な機会です。私自身は、留学に憧れていたものの、学部の間に留学をすることはできませんでしたが、学部卒業後、日本で学ぶ留学生との交流を通じて刺激を受けるとともに、日本からの海外留学経験者の方々に支えていただいたことによって、米国の大学院での留学を実現することができました。東北大学で学ぶ留学生の皆さんや、東北大学から留学を希望する学生の皆さんが、自分自身の世界を広げ、成長していくためのサポートをしていきたいと思っています。

A study abroad experience provides people an opportunity to reconsider their own values and worldviews through living in a different culture. I could not study abroad when I was a college student in Japan, though I was interested in studying abroad at that time. After graduating from university, through interacting with international students in Japan, I was stimulated again, and with the support of people who had studied abroad from Japan, I was finally able to study abroad for my graduate degrees in the United States. I would like to support international students and domestic students at Tohoku University so that they can broaden their horizons through intercultural experiences.

  • 担当職務 / Main Duties|FGL Program

I am a learning addict. Whether I want it or not, I cannot resist the temptation to study and to attempt finding answers to difficult questions. As usually with addictions, the more answers I can find the bigger is my appetite for more challenges. It started long time ago from the challenge in Feynman's claim that nobody understands quantum mechanics. So, I studied theoretical physics and started to work at the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Wroclaw, Poland. Did I find all answers I was looking for? For sure many, but not all. The most important is that I found more interesting questions and reasons to study more. Also, I found that quantum mechanics is much easier to understand than classical mechanics. Now I would say that people believe that classical mechanics is simpler, because they don't understand it and don't appreciate its mysteries. The new questions brought new challenges and more reasons to learn. So, I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from SIU Carbondale in USA. Later, my hunting expeditions in search for answers led me to formal logic, information science, hypercomputing, etc. I am now at Tohoku University. Great place for someone who likes learning. If you have similar addictions, please join me. Don’t expect that I will teach you. Nobody can teach somebody else, but learning together is easier than alone. Good teacher is just a good companion in learning. Let's have fun!

日本とアメリカの大学において15年にわたり、国際教育交流の仕事に携わってきました。高校卒業後、米大学、大学院へ留学し、現地の大学では留学生アドバイザー、アカデミックアドバイザーとして働いていました。10年間の滞米経験を経て帰国し、国際教育交流に携わるプロフェッショナルとしてキャリアを築いてきました。留学中は、数多くのインターンシップやボランティアにも挑戦しました。座右の銘は”Challenge yourself and challenge the world”です。何事にも挑戦すれば道は拓けます。

Upon finishing high school in Japan, I studied and worked in the United States for ten years. With over a decade of professional experience in higher education both in the U.S. and Japan, I bring substantial experience in student advising. My professional goal is to work with students to promote cross-cultural understanding and to assist them to achieve their professional and academic goals. As an international educator, I enjoy working closely with domestic and international students as well as colleagues overseas.

私のキャリアでは、エネルギー生産、廃棄物管理、環境品質といった最重要課題解決に向けた、化学及び材料科学に焦点を当ててきました。 これらの課題は容易ではなく、その研究・解決には、新世代の有望な科学者が必要です。また、このようなグローバルな問題に対し、独創的な思考で新たなアイデアを探求する意欲を持った、国際的な姿勢が必要です。次世代の教育支援を通じて、より多くの科学者の化学の分野への参画を後押しし、教育・科学への熱意とグローバルな姿勢をあわせた、困難な技術的課題への取り組みを促進できることを願っています。

My career has focused on chemistry and materials science to help solve some of the most critical issues in energy production, waste management, and environmental quality. However, these are challenging issues, and we need a new generation of promising scientists to study and help solve these problems. We also require international attitudes with a willingness to explore new ideas with out of the box thinking for these global issues. It is my hope that by helping to educate a new generation of students, I can inspire more scientists to join the field of chemistry and tackle some of the tough technological challenges by combining education, passion for science and a global attitude.

高校生のときにカナダで短期のホームステイを経験してから、国際交流の面白さに魅せられ、以降留学や仕事、ボランティア、旅など様々な形で関わり続けてきました。長期在外経験は英国とタイ、研究関心は日本の大学の国際化です。外国人を含む異文化の人との協働は、大変なこともありますが、自分に学びと成長を与えてくれる貴重で楽しい経験だと思っています。東北大学の皆さんと一緒に、色んなことに挑戦していければと思います。

After a short homestay in Canada during high school, I became fascinated by international exchange and since then have been involved in various international activities such as studying abroad, working, volunteering and travelling. My long-term overseas experience has been in the UK and Thailand, and my main research interests is the internationalisation of Japanese universities. Working with people from different cultures, including foreigners, is sometimes challenging, but I believe it is a valuable and enjoyable experience that provides you with opportunities to learn and grow. I would like to take on many challenges together with you at Tohoku University.
