Recent Research Interests
My research interests are empirical issues in urban and regional research.My research has been published in the journals of regional scienece, housing economics and Japanese economics. My research focus on what people move for. Do people move for fun? Do people move to avoid something?
I am investigating the cause and effect of the movement of people using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology. And I am trying to design and evaluate urban policy in a society with a declining population.
