I am a 5th-year graduate student in the History Department. My research focuses on Japanese colonialism in Taiwan and Sino-Japanese-Taiwanese relations from 1895 to 1945. Born in Tokyo and raised in New York City, I graduated from Yale University in 2004. Since then, I have worked and studied in Guangzhou, Beijing, Yokohama, Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei. At Butler College I will be coordinating a Japanese-language table, Chinese-language table, and East Asian film series.
