プロフィール

I am currently Professor and Director, Global Business at Akita International University (AIU), teaching undergraduate courses in finance and conducting research in empirical finance. My recent research focuses on market microstructure in commodity and equity markets, and the empirical finance of foreign exchange. Previously, I was an Associate Professor in the Graduate School of Economics at Kobe University and in Global Business at AIU. Prior to working in academia, I was a Director at BlackRock Japan, formerly Barclays Global Investors, working in research and strategy for a multi-asset class quantitative global macro hedge fund. At BlackRock, I worked on asset allocation and models forecasting returns in currency, fixed income and emerging market equities, as well as other asset classes. In addition, I created materials to inform and educate our clients about the fund's strategies, as well as analysing the macroeconomies of the Asian region. Before that, I was an Adviser at the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, where I worked in financial markets analysis and research as part of the Bank's monetary and financial stability processes. Much of this work revolved around monitoring relevant developments in global financial markets, extracting and interpreting information from both financial market prices and qualitative surveys of market participants. Previously, I worked in energy and greenhouse gas economics and held management positions in several businesses in Australia. My PhD thesis on the empirical finance of non-ferrous metals markets and was completed at the University of Western Australia under the supervision of Professor Michael McAleer.
