Educational Contents
Undergraduate Course: Introduction of Transportation Economics and Engineering
Graduate Course: Algorithm Design
Research Interests
My academic background is the infrastructure planning and management from the governmental point of view, and my basic standpoint for research is "proposing the better way for public". My main research aims are 1) making management policy of international infrastructures such as ports and airports, and 2) developing the theories/analytical tools for understanding the structure of international transport markets. For these purposes, I develop some mathematical programming models of both aviation and maritime transport markets by applying Nash equilibrium theory, discrete convex optimization theory, and so on.
