Previous research

After getting my PhD from Osaka University, I worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) for one year at Osaka University and as a fellow at the Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) for seven years.  I have conducted empirical studies on aging populations and low birth rates from the perspectives of households and industries.  Specifically, I have discussed the impact of the motives of bequests and other intergenerational transfers on co-residence, consumption, savings, work, educational investment and care behavior between parents and their children, including international comparison. I also discussed productivity in the nursing care industry using micro data.  I have published articles related the subjects above.


Current research projects

My current research projects include the issue of intergenerational transfers in Japan and China, productivity in the nursing care industry in Japan and China, the suitability of existing care services, and evaluation of policies related to low birth rates and aging in Japan and China.
