After obtaining bachelor's degree at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, I moved to Department of Biomaterials Sciences, the University of Tokyo, where I completed my PhD under supervision of Professor Masahiro Samejima and Associate Professor Kiyohiko Igarashi. During PhD study, I contributed to characterization of a Glycoside Hydrolase Family 74 xyloglucanase and structural determination of a Glycoside Hydrolase Family 55 β-1,3-glucanase. Presently, I'm continuing my research on structure-function relationship of GHs at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Uppsala, Sweden in the group of Prof. Jerry Ståhlberg and Prof. Mats Sandgren.
