Assistant Professor Yuliya Lyamzina of FMU’s Office of International Cooperation was invited to give one of the “Science Dialogue” lectures at Fukushima High School on Tuesday, July 3.
Fukushima High School is designated as a Super Science High School (SSH) by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT). In this role, Fukushima High School regularly holds Science Dialogues, at which scientists from around the world speak in English about their countries and their research activities. It gives an opportunity for students to develop their interest in scientific research and to deepen international understanding.
Dr. Lyamzina, from Ukraine, has experience working in international organizations such as United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). She introduced her own research about risk perception and communication which aims to compare reactions to the Fukushima and Chernobyl accidents among the residents.
