Personal Statement: 

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at UC Berkeley. I specialize in political economy, political geography, comparative politics, and subnational politics. My research focuses on the political economy of place-based policies and subnational politics, and I pay particular attention to the geographic movement of voters and firms. I use European, American, and Japanese data to address these questions. I hold an MSc in International Political Economy from the London School of Economics and Political Science as well as a B.A. from the University of Tokyo.
