新板 窮理図解

But we are afraid that going at such a breakneck speed might make you tired. What do you think?
      Maybe running keeps me in good shape. I’m confident in my stamina. On Sundays, I try to run as much as I can. Whenever I take official overseas trips, I bring my jogging shoes with me and run around town so that I can feel the atmosphere of the town firsthand. Running erases the fatigue of journey from Japan to that country. I often invite my students to join in running while also advising them to learn well and play well like myself.
      Another way of getting rid of stress is to meet people. If former workplaces are included, 14 years have already passed since my Mitsukura lab. was established, sending many graduates into the world. Many of these graduates who completed their doctor’s courses are now frontline researchers. Meeting them at times gives me a good stimulus. Graduates of undergraduate courses are also actively at work at manufacturing companies and mass media, so meeting them provides me with excellent opportunities of information exchange. The moment I look at their lively faces, I can forget my fatigue and unpleasant things.

How do you like your research life at Keio University?
      The atmosphere of Keio University is truly unrestricted and there are many researchers of colorful characters, so I feel at home here and am enjoying an unrestricted research life. It’s also wonderful that Keio has a culture of caring for each and every student attentively. This is why I like Keio. In years ahead as in the past, I’d like to continue to give full play to my creative imagination – based on signal processing technology – and energetically pursue research themes that will benefit society.

Just a word from . . .
Student : Dr. Mitsukura is very stoic when it comes to research. But even when I come out with an unexpected idea, she generously allows me to go ahead, saying, “Why don’t you try it?” And she is kind enough to follow up my endeavor with proper advice, which is very nice. All of us at the lab are following Dr. Mitsukura’s example – tackling both research work and pleasure with all our might.
