My Thoughts on Research
Materials research is an exciting job that involves bringing forth new materials that have never before existed in the world through following the strategy of turning our ideas into reality in opposition to naturally occurring phenomena. While it does require considerable struggle to discover something that has never been seen before in history, through the exhilarating discoveries we make, large and small, and our innovations in fiber materials related to food, clothing, and shelter, we are giving people peace of mind by making their lives more comfortable, and, I believe, playing a part in realizing a future society of plenty. I intend to continue pursuing our corporate philosophy of contributing to society by creating new value.
