My name is Kota, and I am an undergrad studying Biology at NYU. During breaks, I typically spend time back home on Oahu and occasionally visit my family’s hometown in Fukuoka, Japan. My hobbies include reading outdoors, refining my kendo, and cooking/eating delicious foods! After graduating from NYU, I plan on pursuing medical school in hopes of one day becoming a doctor. Working with the Thompson Lab has been an incredible experience so far and I look forward to what the future holds!
