PhD in Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in Syracuse, the United States Originally from Toyohashi, Japan, Naomi left her hometown to attend a college in the United States and studied at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of Johns Hopkins University (MA, May 2003) located in Washington D.C. She subsequently served as a World Bank consultant (2003-2006), engaging with public sector governance reforms in low- and middle-income countries. Combined with her short, but eye-opening study-abroad experience in Africa during her college years, these international career backgrounds inspired her to research, from global and comparative perspectives, issues pertinent to public administration and governance reforms. In December 2010, she obtained PhD in Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs in Syracuse, the United States. Her full-time academic career began in August 2011 at the National University of Singapore where she served as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science.
