Yuhei is a Research Scholar (post-doc) at the Japan Program of the Asia-Pacific Research Center (APARC) at Stanford University for the academic year of 2018-2019. His broad research interest centers around understanding how firms and people interact over a social and geographic space, and how such interactions shape the socio-economic space in turn. Currently, he is working on projects that elucidate how Japanese firms form firm-to-firm trade linkages and what it implies for Japanese economies. Yuhei obtained his Ph.D in Economics from MIT in 2018. From 2019, Yuhei will join the Department of Economics at Boston University as an assistant professor.
