I received my Ph.D. in Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. My doctoral dissertation, guided by Elizabeth Grosz, was about corpo-materialist ethics of sound and sensation in Ainu music activism. My book project, which developed from the dissertation, is entitled “Vibration of Others: Resonation and Corporeal Ethics of Transnational Indigenous Soundscapes” is currently under review for publication. My articles on sexuality, ethnicity, and immigration in Japan have been published in several feminist journals, such as Feminist Formations and Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies.
