■ Current research
I am currently researching consumer behavior e.g., analyzing consumer preferences toward foods and country-of-origin after the Great East Japan Earthquake using surveys. I am also looking at food system analysis, e.g., estimating market power on food systems under various conditions, and socio-economics analysis, e.g., assessing the indirect socio-economic impacts of global warming.
