I joined University of Sheffield in August 2021 after teaching Japanese language at University of Manchester, University of Salford and Liverpool John Moores University.

Originally from Tokyo, I have a broad working experience in education and in the manufacturing industry, both of which inform my teaching practice.


BEd (Yokohama National University)

MEd (University of Manchester)

For my MEd dissertation, I carried out research on bilingualism, focusing on Japanese-English bilingual children and their cognitive development in comparison to monolingual children in England.
