Outline Activities
I mainly study the asymptotic theory of statistical inferences and its applications to economic data. I also study resampling mehtods (jakknife and bootstrap) theoretically.

From 1996 to 1997, I was a member of the Japan-Australian joint research "Computer intensitive statistics: Biostatistics and its mathematics" sponsored by Japan Society for the promotion of science.

I teach both undergraduate and graduate students mathematical statistics. I also teach first course mathematics.

I am Editorial board members of two international and one domestic journals. I am also Editor-in-Chief of the international journal.

Academic Activities
1. Yoshihiko Maesono, Spiridon Penev, Improved confidence intervals for quantiles, Annals of the Institute of Statistical Mathematics, 167-189, 2013.02, We derive the Edgeworth expansion for the studentized version of the kernel quantile estimator. Conditions on the kernel are formulated that allow us to get the correct expansion. Inverting the expansion allows us to get very accurate confidence intervals for the $p$-th quantile under general conditions. The results are applicable in practice to improve inference for quantiles when sample sizes are moderate..

Educational Activities
I teach elementary course of mathematical statistics for undergraduate student. I have published a text book for undergraduate student. For graduate student, I use a text book of financial engineering and teach a statistcial inference for risk assesment.
I have also publised a book entitled Statistical asympotic theory, that is suitable for graduate students and researchers.
