Originally from Tokyo, I hold a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Tokyo with “Outstanding” Academic Honors, an MSc in Comparative Politics (Conflict Studies) from LSE, and an MPhil in Politics from the University of Tokyo. I have been working at the intersection of international relations, comparative politics, and international law. My current research is focused on self-determination conflicts and their conflict resolution processes. My doctoral thesis examines the use of self-determination referendums in the context of peacebuilding. My article analyzing the Indonesian government policies on Aceh and Papua has appeared in the Pacific Review.
