I have been a language teacher since 2004, and moved back to Japan to work in universities in 2011. I completed my PhD focusing on authenticity and motivation in 2017 under the supervision of Dr Ema Ushioda at The University of Warwick. I have been actively researching language teaching and learning, and am involved in teacher training, ICT and technology implementation and use, as well as Content and Integrated Language Learning.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

I am interested in technology and recently have been looking at how digital culture and language interact.
