Educational Contents

Graduate Course: International Transportation Economics and Advanced International Transportation
Research Interests
From an economic perspective, I am engaged in constructing efficient global transportation networks, including such subjects as global alliances, air/maritime network analyses, and hub location problems. Now it is getting more and more important to internalize environmental costs with the increasing globalization of logistics activities.
Another main interest is the analysis of the competitive position of cities and the relationship between hub locations and urban growth in the context of "Spatial Economics".
To tackle these issues, an interdisciplinary approach combining a wide range of social and natural sciences is indispensable.
