My Silver Jubilee at SPP: A look back at collaborations for 25 years
In 1998, during my PhD study in Osaka University, I had the fortune to join the Instrumentation Physics Laboratory (IPL) headed by Prof. Caesar Saloma in the National Institute of Physics, University of the Philippines Diliman (NIP-UPD) as an exchange student for one year. Since then, our collaborations have been launched in various fields with many students/researchers/professors resulting in 44 papers co-authored with Filipino scientists. In 2016, I had a great honor to be an Adjunct Professor in NIP-UPD and we have successfully concluded a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between UPD and RIKEN in 2022 for further active collaborations to come. In this presentation, I look back at our collaborations for 25 years and summarize them for our future works.
