Search Strategies, Resource Organization, Management & Sustainability
In my classes, the multilingual aspect is key. It is very refreshing when different students engage with primary and secondary sources in Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean, etc. Both Japanese and non-Japanese students are warmly invited to participate in my courses. I tend to organize my classes in a very open, nonhierarchical way. Learning should be a fun and gratifying experience!
Ph.D. from the University of Leuven, Belgium. Recipient of a European Research Council tarting Grant. Associate professor: University of Tokyo, 2011-2016; Graduate Institute, Geneva (2016-2018). Being a financial historian, I am mostly fascinated by the ways in which money and finance have made modern society tick, especially since the ‘first globalization’ (1870-1914), a period that coincides with the proliferation of the gold standard on a global scale.
