I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Council on East Asian Studies of Yale University. My research focuses on cross-status socioeconomic networks based on documentary forgery production during Japan’s late medieval era, particularly the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. I am also interested in digital humanities and the use of digital tools to analyze premodern historical sources.
