Guest Speaker

T. Matsubara/R&D Strategy Department, MIRAI Technology Institute, SHISEIDO Co., LTD.

An introduction to the guest speaker

Shiseido was founded in 1872 in Ginza, Tokyo, as Japan's first private Western-style dispensing pharmacy. Currently, Shiseido aims to become a global beauty company originating in Japan, creating products and new value that have never been before, not just in the cosmetics business, and realizing "beauty innovation" that makes customers around the world happy through beauty. Dr. Matsubara was a graduate of Tokyo Tech and was also a student of the Education Academy of Computational Life Sciences (ACLS), one of the predecessors of ToTAL, when he was a student. In addition, he has had a slightly different career from many students, such as doing research at NASA when he was a Ph.D. candidate. Dr. Matsubara belongs to the R&D Strategy Department at the Shiseido Global Innovation Center in Minatomirai, Yokohama, and is conducting research to create new technologies. In addition, he has experienced a wide range of tasks such as research and development of new products, intellectual property, and R&D strategy. At the class, while touching on Shiseido's business content, he will focus on themes that do not necessarily have one answer, such as what kind of motivation and thoughts Dr. Matsubara has been active in, what is beauty, etc.
