My research interests lay in the field of social psychology, cultural and from recently environmental sociology. Japanese society, as one of the developed countries with advanced technologies, extreme climate conditions, and unique cultural heritage is an attractive case for investigating new perspectives in many fields. I started to be interested in Japanese culture and language approximately 10 years ago. I studied Japanese language at the Kazakhstan Japan Center for Human Development in the capital city for the first 3 years continuing the study at other courses and individually. I find it a valuable experience to be a participant of the Nippon Foundation Fellowship as the program gives many opportunities to get to know unique culture and traditions of Japan. Therefore, I find it interesting both studying and living in Japan.
