  • Youta Sugai

    Ph.D. : Postdoctral Researcher

    Marine microbial ecology, Biogeochemistry
    Message: I am interested in microbial communities in the ocean surface layer, especially in the Sea Surface Microlayer (SML), which is located at the top layer of the ocean.

  • Yuya Tsukamoto

    Ph.D. : Postdoctral Researcher

    Geochemistry, Geobiology, Astrobiology
    Message: I study the coevolution of geosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere, using geochemical and biological perspectives. My goal is to understand how early life and Earth’s surface environments evolved. Especially, I am now fascinated by the identifications of functional genes that potentially benefit an understanding of unexpectable microbial physiology in modern and past environments.

  • Rocky Md. Mehedi Iqbal

    Ph.D. : Postdoctral Researcher

    Marine Microbiology, Microbial Ecology (Seagrass)
    Message: I have a fascination with nature, especially Ocean. And the Ocean is full to the brim with billions of the smallest organisms, so small that we can’t see them with the naked eye and I would like to explore the diversity and function of these smallest microorganisms.

  • Takayoshi Fujiwara

    Graduate student

    Microbial Ecology
    Message: I would like to clarify how aquatic microorganisms sense and utilize light.
    Department of Natural Environmental Studies, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences

  • Mako Takada

    Graduate student

    Microbial Ecology
    Message: I would like to clarify the relationship between the light utilization mechanism and the photoprotection mechanism of marine microorganisms.
    Department of Natural Environmental Studies, Graduate School of Frontier Sciences

  • Kaho Mori

    Graduate student

    Microbial Ecology
    Message: I am curious about how microorganisms behave in closed environments such as aquariums.
