-Brief Introduction of Yourself
My name is Sholihun, I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Physics, Universitas Gadjah Mada. Currently, I am a Head of the Physics Doctoral Program. My research field is computational materials sciences, particularly, defective crystal and molecular modeling by using the density functional theory.
-How did you get to know Kanazawa University? What is your impression of the university ?
I knew Kanazawa University (KU) when staff from this university visited Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) to introduce the KU-DIKTI program in 2012. I applied for this program and I was granted the scholarship to pursue a doctoral program in KU (2012 – 2015).
My first impression is that in the Autumn season I saw a beautiful view of the campus of KU, which is on the hilltop. Another impression is a professional professor supervised and taught me research and scientific writing, and office staff that helped international students with anything related to campus administration. Another one is that Moslems, including me, feel comfortable with the facilities of the Halal food in the canteen and place to pray on campus.
