(早稲田大学 大学院経営管理研究科 准教授)



Prof. Kanetaka Maki received his Ph.D. in Management from the University of California San Diego. He received Master of Media and Governance and B.A. in Environmental Information, both from Keio University.
Prof. Maki’s research interests involve fields of socio-economics of innovation & entrepreneurship, science policy, and university-industry technology transfer. He has three streams of research contribution: (1) the institutional design of entrepreneurship at research universities; (2) methods to improve startup success rates; and (3) quantitative research of innovation systems, particularly comparing the US and Japan.
Prior to joining WBS, Prof. Maki worked at GRIPS, Stanford University, University of California, San Diego and Keio University. In both the U.S. and Japan, he has been actively involved in designing and implementing the innovation system around university. Particularly in Japan, he is a committee member at national and local governments to create effective innovation policy.


Marketing (Saturday, February 27)

Uma Karmarkar
Assistant Professor of Marketing/ITO

Karmarkar’s research examines the factors that consciously and unconsciously influence how people make decisions, and the ensuing implications for marketplace practices. In particular, she looks at how people use their (incomplete) information when they are faced with uncertain decisions or unfamiliar options, and the biases that can emerge from these situations. Her work also explores the ways in which companies’ decisions about how and when to offer information can frame consumers’ expectations and influence their purchase behavior. This research takes an interdisciplinary approach, combining marketing, behavioral economics, neuroscience and psychology. Her work aims to enable firms to communicate better with their customers, and improving consumer confidence and satisfaction with the decision process.

Before joining the Rady School, Karmarkar was an Assistant Professor in the Marketing Unit of the Harvard Business School, and spent a year as a visiting professor at the Haas School of Business at U.C. Berkeley.

Karmarkar was named a Marketing Science Institute Young Scholar in 2017. She has received research grants from the National Institutes of Health, and from the Department of Defense.

Karmarkar earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2004, and a second Ph.D. in Consumer Behavior from the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University in 2011.
