My name is Jun Kawahara. I was born in 1973, Kanagawa, Japan.
I earned a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering in 1997 and a master's degree of science in 1999 from Keio University. After graduation, I have worked as a corporate researcher. My research themes are biomimetic stimuli-responsive polymer gels, electric-paper(e-paper) and ink formulations of UV-curable and waterborne inkjet inks.
The first time I heard about ”FabLab" was last August. At FabLab Kamakura, I have learned how to use 2D/3D CAD, 3D printing, laser cutting and Arduino. The more I knew about those tools, the more I wanted to learn about digital fabrication.
Then I ended up in enrolling in Fab Academy!!
