Manami had doubts about gender issues in Japan, so she went to Sussex University in the UK to earn a Master’s degree in Gender Studies. Wanting to make use of these experiences, Manami joined Sugata Research. While her previous professional experience is in life insurance and IT, now she strives to increase her knowledge about research by treasuring each day.
In her free time, Manami enjoys reading, listening to music, karaoke, participating in subculture events, and watching musicals. She also pursues her interest in gender studies and psychology through online university programs to improve her knowledge and skills.
