Naoko’s major interest is to enhance understanding of the processes of globalization in the field of accountancy, with specific reference to Japan. She applied multiple approaches to explore how international audit firms have integrated with Japan’s indigenous culture, and how this process is impacting on the way professional identities are constructed. More recently, she is examining this process in a various fields including manufacturing, entrepreneurship and popular culture.

One of her recent research is concerned with how cultural diversity is sustained in the knowledge creation process in international academia. Her particular interest includes: globalisation, translation, audit firms, entrepreneurial university, regional innovation system.
