Programs and Languages
I conduct research on the political economy of climate change and energy problems. My recent research includes the political economy of energy transitions, regional economic impacts of renewable energy deployment, carbon pricing policy design, and energy technology innovation. Empirically, I am particularly interested in Asian countries such as Japan, China, and India.
Please refer to the following interview article (in Japanese) explaining my recent research on renewable energy technology innovation in China and India.
