I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Sociology and Philosophy, University of Exeter. My dissertation topic is methodology of rational choice theory. I’m working with Prof. Francesco Guala, whom I first met in London while I was doing my MSc at LSE. I am visiting (Sep. 2007- Jan. 2008) the Department of Moral and Social Philosophy, University of Helsinki to be involved in TINT, a research project led by Prof. Uskali Mäki. From Feb. 2008 I am planning to visit the Department of Philosophy, University of Tartu, Estonia to work with Prof. Daniel Cohnitz.

The courses at LSE were very intensive and effective, giving me the basic skill of doing philosophy in English, which was no easy task for a Japanese law student.
