Specifically, Japanese food history, Japanese cinema and literature, and Japanese nationalism. I am also the Vice President of Brandeis Japanese Student Association(JSA), a Provost Fellowship receiver, and a research assistant at BU.

Spring 2023

I am a senior majoring in International Global Studies and East Asian Studies, which supplements my interests of Asian history, foreign policy, and immigration law. Many of my research interests surround East Asian nations or their relationship with other countries, in terms of their shared history or contemporary policies. I currently participate in the Student Sexuality Information Service, and will be a part of the GenOne Advisory Board in the upcoming Fall semester.
