Research Area

Dr. Yuki Yamamoto’s primary research interest is the international development in education field, especially youth unemployment issues.  Her experience working in the private sector in Tokyo and in an economic development agency in the US led her to investigate the relationship between education and employment.   While she was working on her graduate degree, she was also teaching Japanese language as an adjunct faculty within the Department of East Asian languages and literatures at the University of Pittsburgh.

Through her graduate study, she became interested in a concept of multiple valid points of view that exist in our world.  She became familiar with Social Cartography as a policy analysis tool, and wrote her dissertation utilizing this methodology.  She also is a co-author of a book chapter which discusses how to use Social Cartography in the Policy Analysis.

She had been working on several research projects in Yamaguchi-Takada lab, including ICT integrated education in Mongolia and 21st century skills.  She was a project coordinator for the JICA’s grassroots project in Mongolia, and also is involved in several graduate seminars. She continues her research on Mongolian education.
