With all staff members and students in both universities unified, we have been working on many bilateral exchange and collaborative research so far. This time, unexpectedly the performance has been highly evaluated by FAU and it is a great honor for me to receive such a prestigious title and I am deeply grateful to those who are concerned in both universities.
I will continuously make further efforts in order to yield mutual benefits for both universities with this honor incentive.
In particular, with a global pandemic continued, I recognize that the essential part of international exchange is a warmhearted interpersonal relationship and try to find out new effective measures and implement them.
