I am a Research Scientist and PICASSO Project Leader at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC).

I study the biodiversity of deep-sea plankton, mostly using manned submersibles and robots, with a focus on the hard-to-catch-in-one-piece gelatinous forms.
What are three titles you would give yourself?
Marine biologist, haiku poet, explorer.
What do you like to do when you are not working?
Play beach volleyball or compose haiku.
What do you like most about science?
Knowing you are probably the only person in history who has ever seen what you are looking at and then being able to tell everyone about the amazing things that are out there waiting to be discovered.
