I am a historian of premodern Japan and currently the Yanai Initiative Postdoctoral Fellow with the Department of Asian Languages & Cultures at UCLA. 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.
