Published on December 19, 2023 Updated on December 19, 2023
What’s your name and where do you come from?

I’m Vinícius, from Paulo Afonso, Brazil

Before JEMARO, what and where did you study?

I studied Aerospace Engineering in Politechnika Warszawska, Poland

What options were you considering after your Bachelor’s? Why did you choose JEMARO?

I was going to continue Master’s studies in the aerospace field, while trying to get a job around the city, but then, a couple of weeks before graduating, I saw an advertisement for JEMARO when I was walking around the university. I still had a passion for travelling around and for robotics/AI, as well as visiting Japan, so I searched more about it and it was the perfect choice for me!

What is the course you’ve enjoyed the most so far, and why?

So far, Space Exploration Engineering at Keio. I always liked the topic in general, and having some more contact with a professor who worked at JAXA and have hands-on experience is really cool

What is your research topic?

Space stuff again, I am developing a soft robotic arm that is attached to the spacesuit, aiding the astronauts/cosmonauts in the ISS maintenance

Why did you choose UNIGE?

As I have visited France before, and lived in Poland for the last few years, it was a nice opportunity to spend some time in a different country yet again, so I chose UniGe to have the full italian experience

Any cultural shocks since arriving in your home institution?

So far, nothing came as a shock, as I pretty much embrace everything and love to learn about other cultures in every aspect

What do you find the most challenging in JEMARO?

All the bureaucracy for visa, immigration, bank, settling in and the first couple of weeks on a new place

What do you want to do after JEMARO?

I want to apply all the knowledge I gathered during JEMARO time in a nice work environment

A final word?

If you’re up for a nice adventure, definitely apply for JEMARO, it gives you tons of great experiences and great friends along the way!
