Brief bio: In 2014, I joined Prof. Masaru Tanokura’s Lab, Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Sciences, the University of Tokyo. Under the supervision of Prof. Tanokura and Assoc. Prof. Takuya Miyakawa, I was engaged in structural and in vitro functional analyses of plant-specific transcription factors. I obtained my PhD degree in Agriculture in 2019 and continued my research as a postdoctoral researcher until 2020. After that, I became an assistant professor at Prof. Kenji Miura’s Lab, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba, and engaged in research using transient protein expression in plants. In addition, I have been conducting research on transcription factors involved in nodule formation and nitrate response in collaboration with Assoc. Prof. Takuya Suzaki’s Lab, Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba.
