Sukhbaatar Javzan

Professor, PhD


It is a true honor for me to be associated with Takada-Yamaguchi Lab. Over the past years, our collaboration with the members of the lab has been always enjoyable and fruitful no matter what we were engaged in: project implementation, writing reports, conducting research studies and monitoring missions, student advising, conference participation and paper presentation or just social activities. This was due to exceptional professionalism and finest personality of professor Yume Yamaguchi. I wish all the best to each and every member of the lab.
