Research interests

Dr Yoshimoto is a member of the Microeconomics research cluster.

Areas of expertise:

  • Productivity analysis (industrial, agricultural, and aqua-cultural productivities)
  • Industrial economics
  • Industrial organisation
  • Consumer protection
  • Auctions
  • Micro-econometrics

Dr Yoshimoto’s expertise is in the field of Industrial Organisation, focusing on empirical research with productivity and game theoretic viewpoints for analysing industries and sectors. His recent research areas include productivity, auctions/procurement and allocation problems. Specifically, he is investigating the role of governments in regulating industries and empirical market designs. He is currently interested in how governments can effectively incentivise manufacturing industries to boost plant industrial, agricultural, and aqua-cultural productivity growth through policy making. His most recent working topics include a project on the Chinese industrial and financial sectors.
