@ @To foreign applicants for a doctoral course

My research topics are urban planning, transportation planning and regional and urban policies that lead to a sustainable and better society. In particular, my interests are to understand the spatial interdependencies between urban activities and urban & transportation planning (or policies), using urban and regional economics and econometrics. If you are interested in this line of study, I can support your research.

I have supervised three foreign Ph.D. students. They were all supported by Japanese government scholarships. As financial support is very important for your studies, I recommend that you apply for a scholarship such as the Japanese governmentfs gMonbukagakusho scholarshiph. After that, all applicants are required to take an entrance examination.

Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter by e-mail. The resume should include results of courses studied at undergraduate and graduate levels. The cover letter should provide an introduction of yourself and your specific areas of interest.
