Specialization/Discipline

International Development and Cooperation, Development Economics, International Relations, Area Study (South and South East Asia)

Research Topic

Originally my interest was lying in social and economic development in South and South East Asia. After having be stationed in Afghanistan as a staff of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), I was also interested in post conflict “Peace-Building” or “State-Building” and have published some papers and a book. With paying high respect to academic disciplines (economics, political study...), I would like to address contemporarily global issues with inter-disciplinary views.
