Brief bio:

In 2013, I joined the lab of Prof. Masayoshi Kawaguchi at SOKENDAI. Here, I worked during my PhD on the topic “Molecular genetic studies on autoregulation of nodulation and nitrate-induced control of root nodule symbiosis in Lotus japonicus”. After getting my PhD I did a post-doc in the lab of Assoc. Prof. Takuya Suzaki at University of Tsukuba. Later, I became interested in epigenetic regulation of plant responses and began to work as a member of Dr. Taiji Kawakatsu’s Lab at NARO. I want to study about epigenomic control on plant-microbe symbiosis in the future.
