AboutI graduated from the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY with a BA in Economics in 2013. That same year I received a Fulbright Study/Research Grant to spend 10 months living and traveling in Japan while studying at Kyoto University. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Economics at Columbia University. During my Fulbright tenure, I examined why household saving rates have been historically higher in Japan than in the United States since the Second World War. I analyzed Japanese attitudes towards risk and investment to help answer this question, comparing my findings to similar studies conducted in the United States (see my full project proposal). Kyoto Chronicle is an attempt to document both my research progress and the people, places, and tastes I encountered as a foreign researcher in Japan.
