Yukimi Morimoto

2015 Winner of the Young Researcher Poster Award for a poster session on superconductivity at the 11th International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation (INC11) held in Fukuoka

I had interest in making things from an early age and participated in a robot competition when I was in junior high school.
During high school, I started doing scientific research on superconductivity in a JST program for high school students at Kyushu University and became marveled at electrical materials. After high school, I left Kumamoto where I had lived for my whole life until then and went on to MIT. I am still working on superconductivity at MIT.
The people at Masason Foundation are different from the people I get to know at my university. I think they will bring me new discoveries. As I am still an undergraduate, this is a great opportunity to meet different people, get to know different ways of thinking and to expand my world.
