What did you do before joining GPSS?

I worked in a restaurant as a lackey while doing theater.


Please tell us the reason why you decided to join GPSS.

I was able to become part of the company because I shared the same philosophy which making the region sustainable through joint projects with the local community.


What is your role at GPSS?

We are working nationwide to create a framework for joint projects with local communities.
Our group's responsibility spans through power sources such as geothermal, hydroelectric, and wind power. Currently, I am working mainly on wind power generation.
With my science background, I am also passionate to construct analyses utilizing python.


Please tell us "the moment when your soul ignited" after joining GPSS.

My soul ignites every time when we communicate our thoughts of "making the area sustainable" to the people in the area and the moment when the local people say, "Let's do the project together."


Please give a word to future GPSS members!

I think the GPSS culture is one that encourages us to think thoroughly about the discomfort we feel in our daily lives and the discomfort we experience at work. I also feel that I can be involved in work that I can really use my skills and knowledge.
