Programme: MSc in Economics (Research), 2009, MSc in Statistics (Research), 2011
Current Position: Deputy Director (Principal), Prudential Standard Office, Financial Service Agency
After graduating from Univ.Tokyo (Dept.Econ) and formulating economic outlook of Japanese government in 2006-08 as an economist of Cabinet Office, I started to study economics and statistics in London School of Economics (LSE). My degrees were very useful when I was engaged in the surveillance of foreign financial institutions at Bank of Japan (BOJ). Currently, I am working for Prudential Standard Office, Financial Service Agency (FSA) as deputy director (principal). As prudence policy consists of macro prudence and micro prudence, the former requires the knowledge of macroeconomics while the latter requires the knowledge of statistical model. Therefore, If you wish to be a supervisor of financial sector, I strongly encourage you to study at (one of) these courses at LSE. Please do not hesitate to make enquiries by sending E-mail to me.
