It is a great honor to receive such a wonderful award.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my supervisor, Prof. SAWADA Yukari, and other professors who have supported me along the way, as well as the many people who gave me valuable advice and suggestions during research exchanges. I take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude.
With the spread of COVID-19 around the world, I feel that it is very significant that my research on medical security schemes using digital technology has been highly evaluated.
I will be continuing to further deepen my research. I ask for your continued guidance and encouragement.
