Previous research

My research area is “financial economics”: I think my definition of the field may be a bit broader than it is usually understood, and I am interested in various topics related to financial stability and monetary policy.
The research topics that I have investigated include the repository of information concerning borrowers in the ladder of authorities inside banks, effects of interaction via non-financial corporation’s balance sheet between domestic banking system and global capital markets in determination of credit in an economy, and effects of unconventional monetary policy on the perception of tail-risks in financial markets.  
Before I was appointed to the Institute of Economic Research of Hitotsubashi University, I worked for the Bank of Japan and the Bank for International Settlements where I experienced a various research activities shaping my current academic research motivations.

Current research projects

I am working on a number of research topics that I believe are in the field of financial economics. As examples, I am studying a somewhat wide range of topics from ones related to central-bank communication and changes in the characteristics of the private sector’s inflation forecasts in Japan to one concerning spillover of risk premiums on volatility of equity prices across countries.
