Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar

I am a big fan of charming Prof. Ogawa and feel some butterflies flying around when writing the message. What is more, the members here are nice too. They are smart and extraordinary. I really appreciate that I grow up with the wonderful people like you. Furthermore, I believe the every moment in Gsics would become one of the best and most precious memories of mine!
