Research theme: Adsorption behavior of viruses onto activated carbon

“ Before I joined the program, since I can use clean water only turning on the tap, I didn't know the fate of domestic wastewater, just felt it disappeared somewhere. But after I visited wastewater treatment plant and attended many lectures as a member of the BWEL program, I really understood the importance of water environment. I think we have to keep interest in water environment and do not forget that there are many people who are suffering from water shortage. ”

“ Through 2 years of BWEL program, I have learnt English very much. Especially, after becoming the tutor of foreign BWEL student, Elsya-san, I have to speak English to communicate with her and sometimes teach our research knowledge to her.

Now I have become a better speaker in English, this is the biggest things I have got from the BWEL program. ”

Research theme: A fundamental study about irrigation effect on plum tree

“ My biggest experience during this 1 year of BWEL program was the internship in China. That was the first overseas travel in my life, thus, I had so much culture shock. Especially, I was most impressed by Chinese food. The Chinese food was very spicy and I had new dishes at every meal, so my stomach also seemed very surprised. I was very surprised at the difference of food culture, which was a good experience for me. ”
