Takuya Onoda obtained his PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics (LSE) in 2019. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in law and political science from the University of Tokyo and has been a visiting doctoral student at Sciences Po. 

Takuya’s research is in the fields of comparative public policy and comparative politics in rich democracies, with particular interests in the state, regulatory politics, and health and social policies. His current work focuses on the politics of policy-making by unelected bodies, such as independent regulatory agencies and expert committees. In his book project, he examines how regulatory institutions and practices have shaped the politics of drug funding policies in Europe and Japan. 

He has also worked on European integration and EU policy, especially in the domains of social and industrial policies. 

His research has been supported by grants from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the Konosuke Matsushita Memorial Foundation.
