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—a product of the changing post-World War I global order and Japan's attempt to set itself apart from European powers.
