UC Berkeley and Stanford University Visits (October 16-22, 2014)

Hello everyone,

I recently I had the pleasure of being able to go California, or more precisely the San Francisco Bay Area for a conference at the University of California, Berkeley BERC Energy Summit (for more info please see the post “BERC Energy Summit 2014 Expo Poster Presentation (October 16, 2014)”,

Since UC Berkeley is my alma mater (I studied there as a Masters student before joining the University of Tokyo), this was a particularly nice trip as I was not only able to meet some of old friends and faculty members but I also visited Stanford University in order to meet up with Mark Z. Jacobson (, famous professor in environmental engineering and directing of the Atmosphere and Energy program.

Below is a selection of pictures giving you some impressions of what the Berkeley and Stanford campuses look like.

Best regards,
