He pursued his postgraduate studies in the Graduate School of Economics where he was supervised by Emeritus Professor Kazuhiko Nishina, former Dean of the Graduate School of Economics and Vice President of Osaka University. In addition to presenting his work at Nippon Finance Association Conference in Tokyo (2004 & 2005), he was selected twice for the Asian FA / FMA Doctoral Student award for the Asian FA Conference in Kuala Lumpur (2005) and Auckland (2006).

His earlier work confirms the relationship between equity style and fund performance (MF, 2007).
