My research focus is modern Japan, Okinawa, and East Asia, and I’m currently teaching at the University of California, Santa Cruz. My dissertation was completed in June 2015 at UC Santa Cruz. I’m the co-director of The Gail Project, a digital humanities initiative that is centered on postwar Okinawa.
I’m a serious traveler and hiker, and a lazy triathlete and cyclist. I also spend too much time thinking about my tomatoes and what I’m going to cook for dinner.
