I am Senior Associate Professor of American Politics at International Christian University, Tokyo. My work in political science primarily concerns US and comparative politics of the Asian Pacific, public opinion, and race, ethnicity and nationalism. I also do work in the field of sports science, relating to the analysis of performance data in football.
I've held appointments at Viet Nam National University in Ho Chi Minh City under the US Fulbright Program and at Doshisha University in Kyoto. I spent 2012-13 at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia Pacific Research Center at Stanford University. I received my A.B. in political science at University of California, Berkeley, and Ph.D. in political science at University of California, Irvine.
