My research theme is “Developing machine and deep learning models to predict the risks of cardiovascular diseases.”


I chose Japan as my destiny to study for several reasons. One of the reasons is that Japan provides rich and sophisticated resources for the transfer of knowledge and skill. I was also influenced by Japanese traditions, cultures, and ways of life. The beautiful nature of Japan- the green mountains, crystal-clear rivers, gardens, etc., are other factors that made me choose Japan.


Before coming to Japan, I was a lecturer in a public university in Ethiopia and I want to continue a similar career path after the completion of my study.


In addition to the convenient learning environment, friendliness of the Japanese people for foreigners, the part-time job opportunities to work while studying, the safety, etc. make Japan one of the best places for foreign students.
