I am a medical anthropologist with training in cultural anthropology and public health (global health). I have been involved with a variety of research projects related to the health and welfare of children and youth. Additionally, I am working toward the development of a model curriculum for the teaching of medical anthropology in Japan. Finally, I conduct fieldwork in various institutional settings such as multinational corporations, medical schools, primary schools, clinics and hospitals in Thailand and Japan through an ethnographic approach. I also engage in community research collaboration between medical, health, social scientists in Northern Japan.
