As already mentioned in the home page, I am a graduate student pursuing doctoral degree in life sciences from the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Okinawa, Japan. I believe that graduate school is an experience which teaches us about who we really are, our real strengths and our shortcomings. It is also a chance for us to overcoming these shortcomings as well. Although every individual has their own experience getting into and living through the graduate school, in this section, I will share my own experiences. It might help, can be silly or may even serve as an interesting read. But most importantly these would be my personal experiences and opinions and do not serve as general guidelines.
