Shotaro Yamaguchi began the Smith PhD Program in Fall 2018 in the Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship specialization. He received a bachelor's and a master's degree in commerce and management at Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo. His research spans across the areas of specialized human capital, employee mobility, industry evolution, and innovation, with a particular focus on the role of science and engineering human capital on technology inventions and firm/industry growth during a country's catch-up stage. He also studies a firm's employment practice that restricts workers' mobility, represented by post-employment restrictive covenants (e.g., non-compete agreements), with an interest in the effect of such restrictive covenants on firm/worker outcomes including wages, trainings, and worker turnovers.
