Why Nakatani RIES?

I decided to apply to this program because it was a rare chance to experience research at an American University while still an undergraduate. Through the research internship in a lab at Rice University, I believe that my academic knowledge will be broadened.

Furthermore, this internship will be an opportunity for me to learn what it’s like to work in a multi-ethnic environment and the changes taking place in the U.S. society under the Trump Administration.

Goals for the Summer

  • Understand the culture of a U.S. research laboratory.
  • Broaden my academic horizons.
  • Obtain good understanding about multi-ethnic environment.
  • Observe changes in the U.S. occurring from the administration change.
  • Acquire English language ability to conduct debate in international environment.
