Dr Nao Kodate joined UCD School of Applied Social Science as a lecturer in April 2012. He holds a Ph.D in Political Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science. His doctoral thesis investigates the mechanisms of policy change in the hospital sector in England, Sweden and Japan.

He was previously a researcher at King's College London (NIHR King's Patient Safety and Service Quality Research Centre) and the University of Tokyo, and also a DAAD visiting researcher/lecturer at the University of Potsdam. 

His books include Maternity Services and Policy in an International Context: Risk, Citizenship and Welfare Regimes (with Dr Patricia Kennedy, Routledge, 2015) and Japanese Women in Science and Engineering: History and Policy Change (with Professor Emeritus Kashiko Kodate, Routledge, 2015). 

Nao led a UCD Seed Funding project 'Designing a multi-disciplinary team training programme for enhancing care quality for older people'. He has also been involved in an international project looking into gender equality in science and engineering education.

Nao is a senior researcher at the Todai Policy Alternatives Research Institute (at the University of Tokyo), a visiting scholar and lecturer at the HOPS (Hokkaido University Public Policy School) Research Centre and also affiliated to the Geary Institute at UCD.
 
He was the Project Leader of the Japan Foundation-sponsored "Ireland-Japan Social Science Symposia (IrJaSS): Sharing knowledge, shaping the future of the welfare society in Europe and Japan" (2014-15), which is a joint project between UCD and the University of Tokyo.
