Hi, my name is Naoya.
I am Japanese, born but grew up in Australia since the age of 2. I moved back to Australia at the start of 2020 as the pandemic was hitting to pursue a career in life sciences and healthcare in Tokyo, Japan.
I completed a Masters of Engineering at the University of Melbourne in 2019, majoring in Biomedical Engineering. I am currently involved in the development and manufacturing of therapeutics and vaccines in Japan. I am passionate about promoting and improving accessible healthcare not only in Japan but globally. I hope to have a future voice that resonates in developing better future health policies and a sustainable healthcare system.
I look forward to sharing my own experiences, meeting new faces and learning about the key challenges, policies and vital industries that are critical in fostering the Australia–Japan partnership.
