I have been rather lax with updating this page. Above is a picture with Waseda University President Kamata at a ceremony in February 2018, when I was awarded a research award by the university. I was very happy for my work to be acknowledged. At the end of August 2018 I left the School of Political Science and Economics, after spending 5 years working there. I would like to thank all my students, especially those who joined my seminar, as well as the administrative staff for their support and assistance. I learned a lot during my time at Waseda and developed as a scholar.
