Noriko Teranishi, a Transatlantic Fellow with Ecologic in Summer 2005, is currently working on the linkages between Trade and Environment.
Before joining Ecologic, Noriko spent two years analysing trade policy issues in the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), where she conducted research and wrote parts of the government’s White Papers on International Trade.
Noriko Teranishi studied development economics at the University of Tokyo in Japan. Her research experience in the Philippines gave her “real-world“ insights about sustainable development. As an extracurricular activity, she hosted the Model United Nations Special Conference on Environment and Development as Chief Director, modeling the Earth Summit+5 in 1997. Noriko is now in the Master in Public Affairs program of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. At Woodrow Wilson School, and in line with her academic and professional experiences, Noriko plans to pursue her specialisation in development studies.
