SMERU was the first office where I worked permanently, and I spent approximately 8 years there. It was interesting to join SMERU, a leading research institution, and to get to know about the world of think tanks and research.

I had new experiences and new challenges at SMERU. Getting to know the research world, which was new to me, was very interesting. Supporting great researchers was also a challenge for me. I gained a lot of technical and nontechnical experiences while working at SMERU. The challenges as one of only two IT staff also encouraged me to accelerate in developing my capabilities, including those outside the IT world.
