Keat Tumu Beamsley（NZ）Masters Course
I came to Japan amid the COVID-19 pandemic in November 2020 – this was one of the riskier moves I’ve made in my life but was, looking back, undeniably worth it. From then to April 2021 I studied as a research student in the Uemura lab, and am now a first year Master’s student in the same lab, working on the self-assembly and synthesis of nanofeatured polymer networks using nanospaces.
Our lab is filled with great, friendly people, and my instructors have been supportive as I build up my research in the direction I choose. Cutting-edge resources are always close at hand and I feel I can freely explore my interests in several different fields here.
Zhang Xiyuan (China) Masters Course
I came to Japan in 2018 for pursuing master’s degree in Uemura & Hosono Lab as an international student after obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Tianjin University (China). My research interest now is synthesis of functionalized polymer within nanospace. Professor always inspires us to find fascinating ideas and encourages us to work sprightly. Everyone in the lab is very friendly and they are always ready to help others. I’m so glad that I decide to study here which enables me to access world-class research platform and enjoy a different culture.
