To prospective students

Thank you for your interest in this group and considering conducting your graduate studies at the Graduate School of Environmental Science, Hokkaido University.

Environmental science is an interdisciplinary academic field that integrates physics, chemistry, biology, and geography to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to analyze complex environmental problems. As such, candidates with diverse cultural, educational, and research backgrounds are welcome. I am always open to discuss research ideas and support applications of students/researchers that are motivated, hard-working, and passionate about water environment.

If interested, please send me an e-mail with : (1) your CV, (2) transcripts, (3) summary of research experience if any, and (4) a statement of research interests.
