Hajime Fujita
Ph.D. student at Stanford 🌲

Hi, I'm Hajime Fujita (藤田 創) at Stanford Bioengineering Ph.D. program. I'm exploring unique combinations of soft electronics and informatics to tackle important biomedical problems. I completed B.S. & M.S. at Tokyo Tech 🇯🇵 and started my career with Prof. Toshinori Fujie at Tokyo Tech and Prof. Michinao Hashimoto at SUTD. My Ph.D. study is supported by Funai Overseas Scholarship ('22-'24) and Stanford Graduate Fellowship ('24-'27).
