About

Satoru ShimokawaAssociate Professor

Faculty of Political Science and Economics,
Waseda University

I am currently an associate professor in the Faculty of Political Science and Economics at Waseda University. My research interests are in the areas of agricultural economics, development economics, and food policy centering on issues involving food consumption behavior and agricultural markets. I received my Ph.D. in Applied Economics (2007) and M.S. in Agricultural Economics (2003) from Cornell University, and a B.S. in Agriculture (2000) from Hokkaido University. Prior to joining Waseda University, I spent eight years as an assistant professor at the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST), and a year as a research fellow at the Institute of Developing Economies (IDE-JETRO).

I have published my research in various pee-reviewed journals, including American Journal of Agricultural Economics, Food Policy, Agricultural Economics, and World Development. I have also served as an editorial board member for multiple journals, including Food Policy, Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, and the Japanese Journal of Agricultural Economics.
