Shigeto Kobayashi Senior Lecturer
School of Knowledge Science,Knowledge Management Area
◆Degrees
Ph.D. from JAIST(2010)
◆Professional Experience
2010/06 - 2010/12 : Department of Economics and Finance, University of Torino , Visiting fellow
2009/04 - 2011/03 : Japan Society for the Promotion of Science , Research fellow
◆Specialties
Evolutionary economics, Economic sociology, Simulation & Gaming
◆Research Interests
My research has been focused on institutional design in financial market and local community. Three topics in my current research are: 1) analysis and design of circuit breakers based on synchronic and diachronic perspectives, 2) study on circulation mechanism of community currency using multi-agent simulation and gaming, and 3) money consciousness research by institutional ecology approach.
