Mohamed Atwa in Japan
“Japan is everything I anticipated it would be and more- from the winding streets of Shitamatchi to the cutting edge facilities of UTokyo, its history and dynamism have had me in the clutches of their deliciously dynamic vertigo from the moment I touched down! Academically, I’ve had the chance to become acquainted with some of the foremost minds in carbon nanostructure research courtesy of the very generous hosting I’ve been receiving here at the Maruyama-Chashi lab. We have seminars from global scientific talent on a nearly weekly basis.
The cultural aspect is just as breathtaking- great food, spring festivals, sakura in full bloom, all this and more! And it’s no small thanks to the KTH Opportunities fund that I’ve had this amazing opportunity to learn, grow, and experience. One can hope and strive that this all will be a huge milestone in my academic career in hindsight- thanks for making this possible!”
Mohameds stay in Japan ends in September 2016.
