Okinawa City, August 2016

 I study Modern Japanese History at Columbia University. My interest is in how Japan remembers its Imperial past, particularly memory of wars in the early 20th century. This is the field of memory. I research this as a student in Columbia's  Department of History. For the Spring/Summer 2017, I am studying at Waseda University in Tokyo. In addition to traditional modes of historical research,  I conduct my exploration of the memory landscape through documentary photography. 

 My research and documentary work has been funded by various sources, including Columbia's Weatherhead East Asian Institute and the Edwin Robbins Fellowship.  I have interned at Esquire Magazine and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholar.
