Total Priod of education and research career in the foreign country
I work as a faculty coordinator for the JTW (Japan in Today's World) program in the International Student Center, Kyushu University. I received my Ph.D. in Education from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in 2017. I have recently published my first book entitled, Transcending Self and Other Through Akogare [Desire]: The English Language and the Internationalization of Higher Education in Japan. I've also served as an invited referee for Current Issues in Language Planning (Taylor & Francis). My research interests include issues of linguistic, racial, ethnic, national, class, and gender-related identities, particularly in transnational education contexts.

As liberal arts courses, I teach "Self & Identity in Contemporary Japan," "Education in Japanese Society," "Gender and Sexuality in Today's Japan," and "International and Multicultural Education in Japan." Although these courses are designed for English-speaking students, I encourage Japanese students to register for or audit these courses, in hopes that students of diverse backgrounds share a sense of community and learn from one another. I also plan and conduct international exchange events, offer pre-study abroad workshops, and orientations for Japanese students who serve as tutors/supporters for international students.
