Our research projects

Research topics of Matsumoto Lab. are broad in environmental, energy, and resource issues and the related policies. Our special interests and specialized fields are climate change and energy fields with quantitative methods such as computable general equilibrium (CGE) models, statistical and econometric models, and various indicators. We implement a lot of collaborative works with not only domestic researchers but also international collaborators.

The details of my information can be found in the Member page. If you are interested in collaborating with us for working/studying at our laboratory, please contact us.
