I am a Research Associate in Japanese Studies and a Research Associate at the Centre for Time Use Research. My research interests lie in the field of family sociology. I am currently working on two projects: The first one analyses the gender balance in the domestic division of labour in several East Asian societies. A pilot study for this project, “Domestic division of labour and fertility preference in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan”, has been published in Demographic Research in 2017. The second project looks at class differences in parenting strategies in Japan.
I am a cultural and intellectual historian in the Faculty of History and the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies at Oxford. Upon completing Year 10 in secondary school, I had a number of very different professions, including work as a mountain guide in the Fjordlands of New Zealand. Later, I helped start-up businesses in the first years of the new Russian Federation, during which time I also helped establish new continuing education programs, incorporating Japanese studies, for adults.
