What are your experiences as a foreigner working in a Japanese company?
Or what was your first month in job like?

What's your favorite recent project you have worked on and why?
As I have already mentioned, my division manager gave me full freedom to work on various research projects.

On top of that, part of this research has been accepted for publication as well. Many researchers outside industry have a wrong belief that industrial researchers do not have chances to publish research article. In Rohto, we are shattering such myth and setting up example through our work.
