01 Description of Research

My primary research interests are cognitive semantics, corpus linguistics, and application of quantitative methods of language data analysis and digital humanities’ methods to language teaching and learning.
Prior to joining Tokyo College, I conducted my DPhil on perception and expression of time and space in Japanese native speakers at the Research Centre for Japanese Language and Linguistics, Oriental Institute, University of Oxford.
Currently I am working on a book manuscript entitled Time and Space in Contemporary Japanese, focused on analysis and typology of expression of temporality and spatiality in Japanese language.
