Current Position

Associate Professor, Graduate School of Letters, Kyoto University

Research Field, Activities and Interests

The area of research fieldwork is done mostly in East and Southeast Asia regarding demographic change and migration. I also send students as educational assistants to public schools in Kyoto for immigrant children where students learn how difficult it is for immigrant children to be socially integrated in the society. Bilateral collaboration between my project and Commission on Filipinos Overseas of the Government of the Philippines continues for more than five years to combat human trafficking and social integration of immigrants and their children in Japan.
