Keita Omi is an Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences division of the School of Arts and Sciences. He specialises in developing the study of foreign policy, intelligence, and government leadership. Keita did his PhD in Political Science at the University of Utah in the United States. He received a Masters in Political Science from San Francisco State University, and a Bachelors in Computer Science from Reitaku University in Chiba, Japan. At the core of his project is an interest in understanding the mechanisms of government secrecy and their relationships to theories in international relations, comparative politics and intelligence studies. His research work investigates American presidential/executive politics with a comparative method and examines why and how secret decisions are made at the top of the government hierarchy by national leaders, and whether their decisions vary from one American presidency to another. A developing research agenda attempts to theorise the concept of secrecy that plays a significant role in the formation of government statecraft. Additionally, Keita is currently working toward publication of a translation work of Year of the Wild Boar: An American Woman in Japan, written by Helen Mears.
