As the Japanese Studies Librarian, I am responsible for Japan-related research consultations, instruction, and the development of Japanese collections. Prior to Stanford, I worked at the Japan Digital Research Center at Harvard University where I served as the Japan Digital Scholarship Librarian. My ongoing connections to Japan include research in maritime history, for which I am completing a dissertation at Yale. I also hold an MSLS in Information and Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an MA in East Asian Studies from Duke University, and a BA from Grinnell College, where my interest in Japan first began.
