Research Area

About

I am a professor at the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. My main research areas are econometrics, international trade, economic issues related to COVID. In econometrics, my research interests include structural estimation, finite mixture models, nonparametric identification, and causal inference. I am originally from Japan, and I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
