New Japanese Economist appointed at the Nissan Institute

The Nissan Institute and SIAS are very pleased to be able to announce that we have appointed Hugh Whittaker to fill the post of Professor in the Economics of Japan.

Professor Whittaker has previously held tenured posts in the universities of Cambridge, Doshisha and is presently a member of the Department of Management and International Business in the University of Auckland.

He describes his research interests as including economic behaviour, management of innovation, corporate governance and entrepreneurship in comparative socio-economic contexts typically featuring Japan but also including other countries of East Asia.

We look forward to him joining us in October.
