My research focuses on the history of modern Japan and twentieth century East Asia. I am particularly interested in the cultural and technological history of mobility. I am currently at work on a project that examines how the modern transportation network shaped what Japanese travelers saw and learned about the Japanese Empire in the 1910s-1930s. Other aspects of this research have led me to consider the relationship between concepts of place, empire, and globalization; the history of transportation technologies and networks; and the historiography of mobility in scholarship on the modern "non-West." I teach graduate and undergraduate courses on modern and recent Japanese history, the history of empire in the Pacific, and the history of travel and mobility.
