Candidate -Master in International Affairs, Geneva Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies/ Institut de hautes études internationales et du développement

I am currently master candidate of international affairs at Geneva Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. I hold Bachelor of Economics from Tohoku University, Japan and previously studied at University of California at Davis/ University of California Washington Center.
My current research interests include business-government relation in emerging countries, global governance and forms of governance, as well as foreign and economic policies in Eurasian countries. I am serving as founding President of the Eurasian Nexus Forum in Geneva, where students, researchers, and practitioners interested in Eurasian affairs gather and exchange ideas on periodical basis.
I have lived, traveled, studied, and worked in more than 15 locations in the U.S., Japan, Italy Switzerland, France, Russia, and Ukraine during last 7 years including major global cities such as Moscow, New York, Washington, D.C., Geneva, and Tokyo. I have mainly worked as researcher, consultant, and lecturer in the realm of international affairs and global governance.

My blog at RIAC is mainly about Russian engagement in Asia-Pacific region, with particular accent to Russia-Japan relations, but also extends to a broader implication of Russian foreign and economic policy as one of the most vibrant emerging countries in the world.
