I'll take this chance to express my thanks and good fortune in working with a truly great supervisor, Prof. Ryuko Kubota. I am continually grateful for your insight, encouragement, and generosity with time and opportunities for growth. #GreatSupervisor #UBC
One example from many: She supervised three of us for an independent course of study on research methodologies. While on sabbatical. She even Skyped in to our discussion meetings from Japan in the VERY early hours of the morning. Above and beyond and I thank you for it
Such a great way to show our gratitude @youbc thank you Dr. Ryuko Kubota and Dr. Bonny Norton for being the #GREATsupervisor
When I was trying to balance between my family and study, Dr. Kubota always showed her understanding and support; when I was struggling with my research ideas and needed to talk, Dr. Kubota always spent the time helping me (re)construct my ideas and thoughts. She replies to emails in a prompt manner and she always offers support. Thank you, #GreatSupervisor Dr. Ryuko Kubota.
