Biography

Dr Nao Kodate joined UCD as Assistant Professor in Social Policy in 2012. He holds a BA (International Relations) and LL.M from the University of Tokyo, MSc in European Politics and Policy, and a Ph.D in Political Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science. 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, a DAAD visiting researcher/lecturer at the University of Potsdam, Germany, and a visiting researcher at EHESS (l'Institut de recherche interdisciplinaire sur les enjeux sociaux, IRIS), Paris in France.

His main research interests include comparative health policy, cross-cultural gerontology, particularly in the use of assistive technologies (e.g. home-care robots) in older people's care, patient safety and the mechanisms of policy change. He has also co-authored books on gender equality in science and engineering from a historical, comparative and institutional perspective. His books include Japanese Women in Science and Engineering: History and Policy Change.

Nao is also a researcher/lecturer at the Hokkaido University's Public Policy Research Centre, a senior researcher at the Todai Policy Alternatives Research Institute at the University of Tokyo, a research advisor at the National Institute for Research Advancement (NIRA), Japan, and affiliated to the Geary Institute for Public Policy 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 was a joint project between UCD and the University of Tokyo. 

He is currently leading a three-year research project 'Comparative analysis of patient safety systems: from the perspective of life cycle of incident data' funded by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. He is also heading the Irish team on an international project on home-care robotics funded by the Pfizer Health Research Foundation, working with Dr Sarah Donnelly and teams at Chiba University, Japan and Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences, Finland.
