Messages from Students
The Tanaka Lab has an excellent hierarchical relationship, and even third-year students can participate in experiments conducted by their seniors. Also, the lab is a place where you can improve your technical skills together with your professors and seniors, who will give you accurate advice.
In Tanaka Laboratory, there are strong ties among classmates, seniors, and juniors, and a friendly atmosphere allows for very fulfilling research activities.
Although the number of students in Tanaka Laboratory is small, we are a laboratory with strong vertical ties, including our senior students and alums. We look forward to studying with all of you interested in our research.
A significant characteristic of the Tanaka Lab is that we have many opportunities to develop things and programs. To build a radio wave radar, I am also involved in the entire process, from designing the whole system to developing programs to analyze the data.
One of the unique features of the Tanaka Lab is that many students work on different measurement systems. While being taught by their professors and seniors, they also work on their own to advance their research, allowing them to acquire practical knowledge of hardware and software. Students also have many opportunities to share the knowledge they have gained, regardless of their grade level, so that they can understand various fields.
Tanaka Laboratory is a very close-knit group, which is only possible with a small number of students. Although there are many trainings in the seminar, it is a good laboratory where you can improve your skills!
Tanaka Lab. research is measuring and mitigating space debris. I am also working on the radar to measure space debris from the ground. In addition to undergraduate and graduate students, there are many opportunities to interact with alums, and I have many chances to ask for advice on employment, research, and other matters. The atmosphere is friendly, and easy to talk with them.
In Tanaka Lab, we aim to solve problems by connecting with our seniors and peers. It is a laboratory where the overall connection is very strong.
