Oh good, you’re here.

I’m a scholar of Japanese literature, performing arts and popular culture at the University of Sydney and enjoy sharing my passion for these subjects with students of all backgrounds and abilities. I’m also keen to make a bigger impact with my work through community engagement, making it more accessible through a range of media. Want to know more about me? Go on, click it.

‘Research outputs’ … Not a great term because it’s so cold, brrrr. But I can tell you that I care about what I research and write. Academics have to ‘produce’, but isn’t it nice that the process can be rewarding, even fun? If you’re a student thinking of taking your studies to the next level, ask your favourite academic why they did, what excites them about their research. We all start someplace. If you’d like to see a cold list of my hot outputs, well, click it real good.
