Profile

I was writing articles on the West African economy, focusing on their “money matters” taking their colonial history into account. The target audiences for these articles were Japanese readers and policymakers. Therefore, unfortunately, most of my work is published in Japanese, while the English titles are, automatically, indicated on this English website. I have since realized the importance of writing my papers in English and have gradually started doing so. The updated information will be provided on this website.
