My research is focused on the international activities of Japanese companies, including hiring workers from other countries and investing overseas. The purpose of my research is to identify best practices and formulate policies that can create win-win outcomes for companies and workers alike. More generally, I am interested in trends that have the potential to generate economic growth in Japan and Kansai, such as the rise of inbound tourism. I also try to address challenges such as how to attract and retain skilled foreign workers and entrepreneurs. My research is empirical, which means that I use data, surveys and statistical analysis in order to evaluate the impact of various trends and policies.
