I am a historian of premodern Japan and currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer in History with The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University. My research focuses on metal caster organizations from the twelfth to sixteenth centuries and their relationships with elite institutions. I also work on documentary forgery production and socioeconomic networks during Japan’s late medieval period. I am interested in digital humanities and the use of digital tools to analyze premodern historical sources. I manage and collaborate in several online projects, including the Digital Humanities Japan initiative; an online database for resources related to East Asia; the blog What can I do with a B.A. in Japanese Studies?; and the digital archive Carving Community: The Landis-Hiroi Collection.
