After a BA in Japanese and Law at SOAS, and an MA in Japanese Literature at Waseda University, Tokyo, I returned to SOAS to complete my Ph.D. on the 19th-century kabuki dramatist Kawatake Mokuami. I have been teaching at SOAS since 2000 in a broad range of areas ranging from East Asian cultural history, pre-modern Japanese language and literature, Japanese classical theatre, and translation.
