He received his PhD in Medicine from the University of Tokyo in the spring of 2019 with a concentration in health economics and statistics (mentored by Prof. Yasuki Kobayashi). His main research interests are in health policy/economics and program evaluation, especially in vulnerable populations. Examples include quantifying the effects of a medical subsidy on children's health (Miyawaki et al, Soc Sci Med, 2017; Miyawaki and Kobayashi, Health Policy, 2019) and evaluating the impact of school lunch program on childhood obesity (Miyawaki et al, J Pub Health, 2018). He has also been interested in health services research related to aging, for example, the effect of caregiving on family caregivers (Miyawaki et al, Geriatrics Gerontol Int, 2017; Miyawaki et al, Soc Sci Med, 2019). Alongside his academic work, he continues in clinical practice as a physician of general internal medicine and home health care.
