    I spent my youth in the U.S.A and Australia, and also worked at two national universities to promote thier globalization; I met many people around the globe and found that there is always so much to learn from each other. I look forward to supporting international students and prospective students from abroad as well as those in the Graduate School/School of Economics who are interested in exploring the world. Please feel free to contact me or come by my office.
