Research Interests
My research topic is to detect (or identify) important industrial clusters or supply chains from production network of industries. For example, using Input-Output Analysis and Graph Analysis, I work on following studies.
  • Analysis to detect key sectors which propagate an impact of price increase of resources
  • Analysis to detect industrial clusters and supply chains which are important for environment (CO2 emission / resources use is intensive)
  • Analysis of inter-regional supply chains which have serious risk caused by disasters
  • Flow analysis of agricultural products
  • Economic and environmental analysis of new technology
Message for Students
I'd like to find solutions of problems of our society (for example global warming, drain on resources, disaster), with combining economics and various other research fields. Let's get new findings together!
