Welcome! I am an Associate Professor of Economics at Nagoya University. My research interests lie in the areas of political economy, labor economics, and economic development. My general approach is the use of statistics and computable general equilibrium (CGE) models to study poverty, inequality, the relation between economic growth and structural change, and industrial policy under globalization. My work includes contributions to the development of analytical tools for policy evaluation in developing countries. My contribution on CGE models and inclusive growth was recognized with the 2013 Flash Session Price from the International Input-Output Association. More recently, I received the 2016 Lawrence R. Klein Award from the Pan Pacific Association of Input-Output Studies as well as the First Thomas Rutherford GAMS Prize which is awarded by both GAMS corporation and the Center for Global Trade Analysis, Purdue University, for my work on CGE and microsimulation models. Currently, my focus is to use field experiments to analyze how socioemotional skills affect the labor market in terms of jobs, entrepreneurship, and earnings in Sub-Saharan Africa.
