Welcome to my website


I am a research fellow at Asia Centre, a think-tank in Paris, France.

I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from University of Washington in 2010.

I have three main research interests.

  • 1. Protests against U.S. military base policy in Asia (mobilization, policy influence)
  • 2. Japan’s security and foreign policy
  • 3. Japan’s civil society and its relationship with the state and business sector
