Yuko Nonoyama-Tarumi is Professor in the Sociology Department at Musashi University in Tokyo. Her research examines patterns of educational inequality. In particular, she studies disparities in academic achievement by students’ socioeconomic status, family structure, and gender in Japan. Her research also draws on international large-scale assessments and household surveys to compare educational inequality across countries. During her visiting scholarship appointment at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, she will be working with Professor Sean Reardon to explore new methods of measuring educational inequality in Japan and cross-nationally.
