Professor - Japanese Advisor, Director of International Studies
Office: Faner 2026
I am a professor in the School of Languages and Linguistics. My academic interests include Japanese language and culture, language pedagogy, and international education. I enjoy teaching a variety of courses in these areas. In addition to on-campus courses, I teach a study-abroad course that takes place in Japan. I hope to meet and learn with you in one or more of my courses!
I cross various academic boundaries and conduct interdisciplinary research. I enjoy learning from thinkers and writers mainly in the fields of Linguistics, Cultural Studies, Education, History, and Anthropology. I study intersectional identity politics in various global and educational contexts by utilizing various qualitative and interpretive methodologies, such as ethnographies.
If you have any questions about my courses or research, please feel free to contact me.
