About Me

I am a time series econometrician who is especially interested in Granger causality in mixed frequency time series. After receiving a B.A. in Economics and M.A. in Economics at Waseda University in Japan, I enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the Department of Economics, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in August 2009. I  received a Ph.D. in Economics in May 2014. Starting in June 2014, I am working as a research associate at the Faculty of Political Science and Economics, Waseda University. My new Website there is:

My dissertation research is on “Granger Causality in Mixed Frequency Time Series”. Time series are often sampled at different frequencies, and it is well-known that temporal aggregation has adverse effects on Granger causality tests. I am developing a set of Granger causality tests that explicitly take advantage of data sampled at different frequencies.
