Fiona Strain our new ISSLS staff member

Due to an increase in both academic and administrative activities at our society, the workload at our administrative office has

now become overwhelming and we have decided to invite a new administrative staff member to our office. It is my great pleasure to introduce Ms. Fiona Strain who has recently joined our team.

Fiona is a resident of Brisbane, Australia and is an experienced office manager, journalist, editor/writer and event manager with more than 20 years’ experience spanning politics, IT, media, education and biotechnology. Above all she is a very nice and lovely person. I am sure that she will increase our administrative capacity and enable us to challenge our new targeted goal including fundraising.

Please welcome our new staff member and friend, Fiona!
Kazuiro Chiba, Secretary of ISSLS
