Hello everyone, my name is Yang and I am a 1st-year Ph.D. student in GPES program, the University of Tokyo.
I come from China and before coming to Japan, I mainly studied Geographical Information System (GIS) and ecological economics. Currently I am researching integrated assessment models relating to climate change.
As far as I am concerned, life in Japan is wonderful. Daily life is comfortable and academic study is advanced. Existing GPES students are what makes GPES a more attractive program, they are energetic and diversified, and I have learned a lot from them. The contact with different cultures indeed increases the awareness of my own culture and self-recognition.
You’re warmly welcomed to join this great program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me either by emails or leaving comments. I will answer them as soon as possible.
