My research interests center around gender, sexuality, and family in twentieth-century East Asia.

I previously examined how the Japanese "good wife, wise mother" ideal was promulgated in colonial Taiwan through a women's magazine named Taiwan Fujinkai. My latest project focused on the legalization of intermarriage within the Japanese empire.
