Dr. Komiyama joined the University of Tokyo, Department of Nuclear Engineering
and Management, as an assistant professor in 2010. He is originally from
the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ), where he conducted the
development of energy-economics model based on econometrics and mathematical
optimization, and the evaluation of long-term global energy demand and
supply projection. He had also served as a member of formulating governmental
energy projection under the supervision of Ministry of Economy, Trade and
Industry (METI). He obtained a Bachelor in 1998, Master in 2000 and a Ph.D.
degree in 2003, all in the field of electrical engineering from The University
of Tokyo (UT). His fields of research are energy demand and supply projection
in world and Asia, energy security and global change issue, and end-use
