Tarek Aoukar


Department of Computer Science
School of Computing
Student Ambassador from July 2020 to March 2022

My name is Tarek, but everyone calls me Tako!
I am from Syria, and I have spent 5 years in Egypt for my undergraduate degree and starting my 3rd year in Japan. I decided to live in Japan for many reasons, mainly cultural ones. I travelled a bit around Japan (7 prefectures and counting). Also, I love exploring various aspects of the social life in Japan for both foreigners and Japanese people as well and their interactions. I recently started training kyudo (Japanese archery), and I play some table tennis, and love taking long walks!
Currently I have just finished my master’s degree and started my first year of PhD in computer science, as well as my first year as Student Ambassador, one of hopefully many.
If you have any questions or just want to hang out, feel free to reach me anytime, I also love food so lets grab a bite whenever
