Professor Nozomu Kotake from Kagawa University Japan

Professor Nozomu Kotake has visited my research laboratory at Faculty of Science and Technology in UKM.  Professor Kotake is a Professor of Civil Engineering at Kagawa University in Japan and he is an expert in Geotechnical Engineering.  I firstly met Prof Kotake at the GEE 2013 Conference in Seoul three weeks ago (early June 2013). I would like to thanks Prof Kotake for the visit.  The visit was also accompanied by Prof Abdul Rahim Samsudin.
