I am an associate professor in the Department of Economics at Osaka University. Before joining Osaka University, I had been working at National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) and Waseda Institute for Advanced Study (WIAS), Waseda University. I graduated from Waseda University and received a PhD from Hitotsubashi University. I am an empirical economist whose research area is Industrial Organization. My current research is studying issues in antitrust by using game theoretic models and testing implications from these models.
