  • 専門分野 / Field |生命科学 Biochemistry, Cell Biology
  • 担当職務 / Main Duties|First year biological sciences curriculum (FGL program) - University International network development - Research on bacterial metabolic function and complex systems

Martin Robert is Associate Professor at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan. He teaches biological sciences core courses at the FGL International Undergraduate Program including fundamental courses in cell biology and biochemistry and a course that merges principles of physiology and systems biology. In addition, Martin is actively pursuing research on the metabolic function of E. coli. His interests are centered on functional enzyme genomics using metabolomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics tools, the metabolic response of E. coli during adaptive evolution, and the dynamics and systems biology of this bacterium.
Martin obtained his B.Sc. (1990) and PhD. (1996) in biochemistry from McGill University in his native Montreal, Canada. This was followed by postdoctoral training (1996-2001) in a private pharmaceutical research institute, part of the Chugai-Roche group near Tsukuba, Japan where he worked on cellular aging and cytokine receptors. He also worked as project manager at Euroscreen, a biotech company in Brussels, Belgium (2001-2002). Prior to joining the faculty at Tohoku University in 2013, Martin was Assistant Professor at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences, a pioneering institute part of Keio University in Japan, the oldest private university in the country. Martin is also guest lecturer at Yamagata University.

  • 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!

I had a lot of difficulties in living and studying abroad when I was a student, and now I can say that I am grown up because of being helped by many kind people. Thus, this is my turn to help you whenever you face any programs during your stay. Please do not hesitate to come and talk to me. I look forward to seeing you in Sendai.
I am teaching "Promoting Human Rights Education" and "Practicum in Education for International Understanding". I try to make the classroom as democratic as possible and mix with International and Japanese students. I will wait for you to join us for our interesting discussions.

  • 専門分野 / Field |原子核物理実験 Experimental nuclear physics
  • 担当職務 / Main Duties|FGL Program (Freshman Physics)


My main activity thus far has been research on nuclear structure through experiments using particle accelerators both in Japan and abroad. In my field of basic science research, the research activities themselves cannot be sustained without an international environment. My vision of globalization is not that of a world of global standardization, but rather of symbiosis and cohabitation through a web of diversity (interconnected diversity), a vision to which I am also led as I try to understand the working of the natural world. Students from the FGL program foster originality in their diverse campus life and leave with an aspiration to face global problems and crises; this is one of my dreams.

I have experience in a number of international activities, such as working as a tutor for International students and joining the Association of International Student Exchange, as well as studying abroad as an exchange student when I was a student. We offer a lot of International Exchange Programs on campus. So, please do not hesitate to participate in those programs to broaden your horizons.

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.

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.

Since acquiring a Master’s degree in TESOL in the U.S.A., I have taught 4-skills English classes and English test preparatory courses at universities in Japan.
Through studying abroad, I have gained experience in cross-cultural understanding, and have seen the world from international students’ perspective. I am more than happy to support Tohoku University students interested in studying abroad, and provide them with an opportunity to enrich their university experience through studying abroad.
