Please join in congratulating Professor Jenny Corbett, our Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research and Research Training) and colleague from Crawford School, who was recently named in the Japanese Imperial Honours list.
Jenny has been awarded the Order of the Rising Sun (Gold Rays with Neck Ribbon) for her 'contribution to developing Japanese Studies including economic areas in Australia and promoting mutual understanding between Japan and Australia'.
This is a true mark of distinction, reserved for the scholars that the Government of Japan holds in highest esteem. Jenny's formal investiture will be in Canberra within the next couple of months and we will join in celebrating with her then.
Prior to her appointment as Pro-Vice Chancellor Jenny was Professor and Executive Director of the Australia-Japan Research Centre in Crawford School, and founding Director of the College's Japan Institute (https://researchers.anu.edu.au/researchers/corbett-jm).
She represents ANU on the Australia-Japan Business Cooperation Committee. She also retains appointments as Reader in the Economy of Japan at the University of Oxford; Research Fellow of the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR, London); and Research Associate of the Centre for Japanese Economy and Business at Columbia University.
Jenny's PhD in Economics is from the University of Michigan. Her research centres on current macro-economic and financial policy issues in Japan, regional financial integration and trade in financial services. She has been a consultant to the Asian Development Bank, the OECD, the World Bank and the European Commission and has directed research projects for the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) on economic policy issues in the East Asia Summit group of countries.
