General information about Waseda GSE
My research area
- I'm doing research on international trade theory, especially on theory of trade and growth.
- According to JEL Classification Codes Guide, my papers mostly fall into:
- F13: Trade Policy; International Trade Organizations
- F43: Economic Growth of Open Economies
- Unfortunately, I can NOT give professional advice on:
- empirical analysis of international trade: applying econometric/statistical methods to real-world trade data
- country/industry case study: how has an industry in a country been, and how will it be?
- trading business: what should you do with real trade?
- international finance/macroeconomics: exchange rates, current account deficit/surplus, international borrowing/lending, etc.
- Follow the latest course registration model, which can be found at the GSE website.
- You have to be good at microeconomics, macroeconomics, and econometrics before starting my research guidance.
- I will allow you to write a Doctoral dissertation only if I'm convinced that your Master's thesis is publishable for international refereed journals indexed in SSCI.
- For Master's students pursuing a Ph.D., consider applying for some of the top 100 schools in Tilburg University Economics Ranking.
